YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Marriage records are now easier to access and can be printed free online in Mahoning County.

You can apply for a marriage license, too.

“It looks more professional and also ease of operation. That’s what I was looking for,” said Mahoning County Probate Judge Robert Rusu

Due to the new federally compliant driver’s license requirements, as well as employer-required verification of marriage, Rusu wanted to make marriage records easy to access by users of the online system.

“Be prepared for October 1. You have to have your federally compliant driver’s license if you want to get into any government building or fly domestically in the U.S.,” Rusu said.

Case information in the court can also be accessed online.

For anyone who was married prior to June 1, 1999, the court has added a new option for those individuals to obtain a copy of their marriage license. Several libraries in the area have been deputized to provide certified copies of marriage records.
