How to Use the Record

Begin your search by finding your ancestors in the index. Name indexes to marriages make it possible to access a specific record quickly. Remember that these indexes may contain inaccuracies, such as altered spellings, misinterpretations, and optical character recognition errors if the information was scanned.

When searching the index it is helpful to know the following:

  • The names of the bride and groom
  • The marriage place
  • The marriage date

Use the locator information found in the index (such as page, entry, or certificate number) to locate your ancestor in the marriage records from Nevada. Compare the information in the record to what you already know about your ancestor to determine if this is the correct marriage. You may need to compare the information of more than one marriage to make this determination.
