Marriage license search

Use this search to find Philadelphia marriage records from 1995 or later. The search will return a marriage license number, which you can use to request a copy of the record. 

  • You must enter at least one applicant’s last name. 
  • To broaden your results, enter a partial last name. (For example, “Smi” will return results for Smith, Smithton, and others.) 
  • To narrow your results, enter the applicants’ first names or a date range for their marriage. You can’t search by date range for records prior to 2007. 

If you don’t find the record you need, you can submit a request to the Register of Wills.
