Question:  My great-aunt is rumored to have married and divorced in Arkansas during the Great Depression.  If I do not know the county can I still get the record statewide?

 

Answer:  According to the Arkansas Department of Vital Records you can obtain a record of divorce from them.  They maintain records of divorces for Arkansas since 1923.  For more information go online to: http://www.healthy.arkansas.gov/programsServices/certificatesVitalRecords/Pages/MarriageandDivorceRecords.aspx
