Welcome to the St. Louis City Recorder of Deeds

Free Direct Marriage Search.

It is a work in progress, so your patience and feedback is appreciated.

Indexing is presently available for years 1881-1892 and 1949-1987. As indexing is completed for another year, we'll let you know.


+ Presently, the search feature does not support mobile devices.

+ If searching by Date, provide an End Date even if it is the same as Beginning Date.

+ Maximum search return is 100 results with the most recent first. If you enter a Month + Day + Year but No End Date, you will get results beginning with 1987.

+ Presently, the date a Marriage License is returned and recorded is the date available on the public index search, not the date of the ceremony. We are working on getting that changed to date of ceremony.

+ This is online access to indexing- Bride Name, Groom Name, License Number, Date of Return/Recording- not scanned images. You may view documents at the office at no fee during regular business hours and/or purchase copies in person or by mail.

+ Please disregard "Business" in name field.
