Marriage & Divorce Records
Over 5,200 Marriage & Divorce Records online

This is an free online collection of marriage and divorce records regarding people who had a San Francisco connection. Most of these records were transcribed from historic newpapers before 1906. All of the records in this collection include a source citation, so that you can determine where the record can be found. While most of these records are from historic newspapers, there may be other record types as well, such as church records and actual marriage licenses and certificates.

Please note:

  • We do *not* have copies of these marriage or divorce records, nor can we answer questions about the people mentioned, since we are only providing the collection online for your use.
  • If there is a "contact" name, you may contact the researcher with questions about the families mentioned in the marriage or divorce record, but they have *not* necessarily volunteered to provide copies.
  • Source information for each entry is provided for your convenience so that you can obtain a copy of the record on your own. This is *highly* recommended, as some of the older microfilmed newspapers, especially, are difficult to read and transcription errors may have occurred.
  • If you have any San Francisco marriage or divorce records among your research notes, particularly if they are from pre-1906, we invite you to submit them to be included in this growing collection. Records regarding your own families of interest may include your email address if you wish that other researchers be able to contact you. Records for families that are unknown to you are welcome, too, so please consider sharing them as well. . .they may be of great help to another researcher!
