Missouri Pre-1881 public marriage records in Missouri consist of marriage contracts and Marriage Register entries recorded with County Recorders of Deeds. 1881-Present public marriage records consist of Marriage Applications and Licenses issued by County Recorders. Missouri Marriage Applications rarely contain a parent or guardian name, only when the applicant was a minor and required parental consent. In Missouri, a Marriage License issued by any County Recorder may be used for a ceremony anywhere in Missouri but the License is returned after the ceremony to the County Recorder who issued it.
