Oregon Marriage Records Search
Oregon marriage records are not open to the public for 50 years after the event at the state level and can only be accessed by the registrant, immediate family members, legal representatives or government agencies. Oregon marriage records are also managed at the county level.
For marriage records since 1906 to the present, certified copies of Oregon marriage records are available for purchase from both the State Vital Records' Office and the County Clerk's Office in the county where the marriage license was issued. Marriage records prior to 1906 or recent marriage records (six to eight weeks) are only available directly from the County Clerk's Office. For public marriage records 1906 - 1910 and after 1945, uncertified copies are available from the Oregon State Archives.
