Marriages

"The Louisiana Vital Records Registry is the Marriage License/Certificate repository for all Orleans Parish marriage records where the ceremony was conducted within the past fifty (50) years.  If the marriage is an Orleans Parish marriage but the ceremony was performed more than fifty (50) years ago, you must place your order with the Office of the Secretary of State.  If the marriage license was purchased in a parish other than Orleans, you must place your order with the Clerk of Court in the parish where the license was purchased."
