Marriage Certificates

Images of marriage certificates after 1974 are not available online, but indexed information is retrievable if the marriage license was issued by Storey County and if the certificate was presented to the County Recorder for recordation. If you applied for your license in another Nevada county, please contact that county for a certified copy.
