Marriage Certificates

The individual performing the marriage ceremony is responsible for recording the Marriage Certificate in the County that issued the marriage license. For example, if the license was purchased in Lyon County but the ceremony was performed in Las Vegas, the marriage certificate would be recorded in Lyon County.

The Lyon County Recorder's webpage maintains an index of marriage certificates going back as far as the mid 1800's. Whether you need a certified copy for legal reasons or for genealogy and want a souvenir type copy, we can help.

Start with our Browse Records page, choose Document Type "Marriage Certificate" and enter the names you are searching for.

Certified copies of marriage certificates can be obtained at the recorder's office or by mail for $15.00 per copy.

Unofficial copies of marriage certificates are now available online from 1862 to current.
