Certified marriage records are official, legal documents and obtained through the Massachusetts State Registry of Vital Statistics in Boston. Each record is a duplicate of the original and embossed with an official raised Massachusetts state seal.
Certified marriage records are valid for obtaining passports, providing proof of age, United States citizenship, obtaining social security benefits and many other legal purposes.
The charge for locating, obtaining and shipping a Massachusetts certified marriage certificate is $45 [US]. Quantity discounts apply for duplicates of the same record ordered at the same time.
If you do not need a marriage certificate for legal or official reasons, request a transcribed record. The fee for locating, transcribing and emailing a birth record is $20.
A transcribed record is not an official or legal document. However, it is an excellent alternative for such purposes as genealogy research or for background investigations. All information recorded on the original record is hand copied by one of our researchers. Information is then transcribed into a "plain text" PDF file format. It is only delivered as an email attachment.
If you need the record(s) for any legal or official purpose, such as applying for a passport or a driver's license, or benefits, order a certified record.
