Did your Australian ancestor get married in the Australian Capital Territory in the south east of Australia? Search more than a thousand records to find your ancestor’s marriage date and spouse’s name.
Each result contains a transcript of the original records. The information available can vary from transcript to transcript, but you can usually find out the following about your ancestor:

Spouse’s last name
The Australian Capital Territory (or ACT) is a self-governing territory in southeast Australia, enclaved by New South Wales. It is one of two self-governing internal territories in Australia and is the smaller of the two. The only city in the territory is Canberra, Australia’s capital city.
This database comes from the Australia Capital Territory Archives. Further details will be found on the marriage certificate itself, which can be obtained online from the Office of Regulatory Services. Due to the sensitivity of the information found on marriage certificates, the marriage must have occurred more than 75 years ago to obtain a certificate.
You can search on first and last name. Use the name variants in your search to return results with slight variations in spelling—such variations in spelling may be a product of an error in transcription.
You can use the optional keywords field to search with a spouse’s name.
