Where To Find Marriage Certificate Serial Number


(5) It has newly adopted a unique 10-digit serial number that reveals the region and date of issuance for each certificate, enabling the searching and calculating of microcomputers.

A marriage license is filed with the Clerk's Bureau of Vital Records after the marriage ceremony takes place. The officiant performing the ceremony completes and signs the marriage license and returns it to the Clerk's office, where it is recorded.

An official from the Rule of Law / Human Rights Department, Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Presence in Albania stated that there is a new A4 birth certificate that has been in circulation since 2003 or 2004 and is now being used throughout Albania (OSCE Feb. 2006). The Official stated that the new birth certificate is "the only official form" of birth certificate (ibid.). According to information obtained by the OSCE Official from Albania's General Directorate of the Civil Registry, the birth certificate came into effect on 1 April 2004 following an 11 December 2003 ministerial ruling (ibid.). Roughly seven million birth certificates, which are valid for three months, are issued annually (ibid.). The OSCE Official noted that the new birth certificates have a serial number and a hologram (ibid.). Both a human rights organization and an official at the Embassy of the Republic of Albania in Washington, DC made reference to photos on birth certificates (AHC n.d.b.; Albania 25 Sept. 2007).

[Birth certificates] are distributed centrally by the General Directorate of the Civil Status (GDCS) of the Ministry of Interior who keep records of distributed certificates. The first three digits in the serial number refer to the number of the specific Civil Status Office (CSO) of the municipality/commune. There is also one generic three-digit number (if not mistaken - 372), which can be used if the CSO of the local government units [(LGUs)] run out of certificates. Theoretically it is possible to track down each certificate to the office and official who has issued it - the serial number has to correspond to the stamp of the LGU, which shall be considered as part of a complete certificate.... Certificates are issued by the CSO based on records of the Fundamental Registry books - a decentralised Albanian civil registry system. (OSCE Feb. 2006)

[t]he first three digits of the serial number refer to the code of the Civil Status Office. Each Civil status office has a unique code. Normally each local government unit has one Civil status office, with exception of larger cities - Shkodra, Durrës, Fier, Vlora, Korça and others. (ibid.)

Old Law" Naturalization Certificates issued by INS to replace naturalization certificates that were lost, destroyed, or mutilated, where the original naturalization certificate was granted under the "old law" procedure in effect prior to the Act of June 29, 1906 (which became effective September 27, 1906).

During the wedding ceremony, you and your witnesses signed a Commonwealth marriage certificate. This is also known as the 'party certificate'. Usually your celebrant presents it to you after the ceremony.

A birth certificate number is an 11-digit identification number that is included on all U.S. birth certificates. It is written in XXX-XX-XXXXXX format, and each birth certificate number is unique and is made up of the:

This is a two-page document set originally issued by the New York City Health Department. The files were later moved to the New York City Municipal Archives. Note that a marriage certificate is not the same thing as a marriage license!

There is also a totally separate record database that indexes the NYC Health Department marriage certificates up through 1937, which was created by the combined volunteer efforts of two non-profit genealogical groups. Note that marriage certificates and marriage licenses are not the same thing. Read more about the many different kinds of New York City marriage records.

Beginning in 1666 the traditional marriage vows of the Anglican church were required by law. This law prescribed proper notice of intention to wed before the ceremony could occur. The county court issued certificates stating that the required notice had been heard or posted, usually three weeks before the wedding. The Governor and Council could make special dispensation rescinding the waiting period.

The 1777 law applied only to the marriage of white citizens. Not until 1867 did the marriage laws apply to blacks. In addition, the publication of banns on three Sundays in the county where the female resided could be used in lieu of a license. Quakers could marry without a license in accordance with their practices. Licenses generally are listed chronologically in record books, and sometimes include a sequential number assigned by the clerk. The date of the license, names of the two parties, and sometimes the minister's name are recorded. No other information is given, and the license does not prove a marriage occurred. Often the record contains an accounting of the fees paid. The Directory of Maryland Ministers by Edna Agatha Kanely (LIBRARY, REF A-5-2) can be used to determine the church or parish associated with the minister's name on the license. Many of the license records have been abstracted and published.

An 1886 law required signed applications for marriage licenses. It also restricted marriage to males over age twenty one and females over sixteen, later changed to twenty one and eighteen and then eighteen and sixteen. After 1939 pregnant females, and after 1949 putative fathers over age sixteen, could obtain licenses without parental consent. In 1937 a waiting period of two days was added. The law specified that marriage application records contain name, residence, age, race, occupation, and marital status of each party; date of the application, sometimes date of the license and marriage; consent of the parents or guardians of minors; and signature of the applicant. For some unknown reason the law was not applied in Baltimore City where the records include only the names of the parties, date of application, and signature of the applicant, all of which is written in pencil. Entries in the county and city records are arranged chronologically by date of application.

From the time marriage licenses were first required in 1777, Maryland allowed individuals to marry without a license if public notice was given at a church on three Sundays prior to the wedding, a process known as publication of banns. An 1890 law provided for the recordation of these marriages by requiring the ministers to file a certificate with the court clerk who would record the information. The records include the date and place of marriage, names of the parties and minister, and name of the church. Entries are arranged alphabetically by the first letter of the male's surname and then chronologically. Marriages by banns prior to 1890 can be found only in church records.

From 1914 to 1940 the Bureau of Vital Statistics maintained one series of marriage certificates for the counties and another series for Baltimore City. In 1941, the Bureau began filing the Baltimore City certificates with the county certificates, creating a single series of records. Unfortunately for researchers, the Bureau did not begin indexing the certificates until mid-1951 when the General Assembly authorized them to provide certified copies of marriages performed after June 1, 1951 (Chapter 76, Laws of 1951). Also in 1951, the Bureau was given its current name of the Division of Vital Records.

During the years 1914 to 1940, the Bureau of Vital Statistics arranged the Baltimore City certificates chronologically by year and month. Within each month they are sometimes alphabetical by the groom's name and sometimes in no particular order at all. Because there is no index, one must know the month, year, and groom's name to find a certificate. Each certificate provides the names, ages, birthplaces, races, occupations and residences of the couple, the date of the license, the date and location of the marriage, and the name of the minister. The certificates also indicate whether there was a prior marriage and the names of the consenting parents, or guardians, if one of the parties was a minor. If neither the bride nor the groom was a minor, the parents are not listed. 350c69d7ab
