Marriage Records

Beginning in 1640 the Maryland General Assemby required clergy to post marriage banns and keep registers of marriages. Since 1777, county clerks have been required to issue marriage licenses and since 1865 to keep minister's returns.

The Maryland State Archives has copies of marriage records prior to 1914.
