Hi,

Unfortunately Alaska restricts access to marriage records for 50 years after the event unless you are the bride or groom and a few other exceptions. The exception rules for all vital records can be found at http://genealogy.about.com/od/vital_records/p/alaska.htm. Successful Searching!

Annette,
You were given a disservice by the answer received. There are a number of methods to obtain the answer to your question. But first, when you post an inquiry it is very important to provide some basic criteria information about the people you seek. There are a lot of Robert Bedlow's or Helen Clarks. If they are still living, a lot of information on this site would not be found. If you post their date of birth, or an approximate, that helps narrow the searches. If you don't know even the year of birth, the name of parents, siblings, event dates (high school graduation), date/place of death, can help.

In this case, how you suspect there was a marriage or divorce in Anchorage in Aug/Sep 1982 would help. IF they married in those dates, it may have been difficult to also divorce. Were they both FROM Anchorage, AK , at the time, or just eloping? Where were they from, this might help connect that event.

There are other means to obtain genealogy information other than the COLD law presented by the others attempts to research assistance. If you know the name of either persons siblings, or parents names, other family members might be able to provide some clues. Local newspapers might hold information, however, without specific time frames, a review of microfilms might be a long waste of time.

I find a Helen E. Clark, DOB Unknown, died 1989 in Anchorage. She had married a Wallace Bradley "Jr." Clark on 26 Aug 1974 in Carson City, NV. No known facts to confirm this is the correct person.

If you have other facts about these people, post them, it might help in the research.
