Hi Judy

I am unsure how many states or counties have begun to add the SS# to
marriage licenses.  Florida began a while back but they put the number right
across the extreme bottom of the license so when you want a copy the clerk
simply does not copy the bottom of the license.

I have recently heard that the East Baton Rouge Parish Clerk of Court has
locked up the cabinet with the marriage license microfilm and is not
allowing the public to access them.  They are claiming that a federal law
prohibits the publication of social security numbers and addresses on the
Internet.  They plan to scan the microfilm and block the prohibited
information.  In the meantime, the public cannot access any of the marriage
records, even though the SS# only started appearing on the form in the
1970s.  Their marriage records date back to 1840.


Is any other jurisdiction doing this?
