Viewing Vital Records

Person Selecting Record

The following will provide you with the procedure for viewing vital records. Certificates and indexes of marriage records not exempt from public inspections may be examined at the Office of the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays.

In addition to certificates on file, there are indexes of marriages available for public inspection as follows: Marriages from 1852 to the present. Records of confidential marriages performed pursuant to Family Code Section 500 are not available for public review.

Certificates and indexes may be examined at no charge unless an employee is requested to search and/or retrieve more than five records. Random searches of the indexes or the certificates are not allowed. An application is required for each record searched. Information sufficient to identify the requested record must be provided. You will be asked to provide identification.
