KPL CERTIFICATE MAKER
The KPL CERTIFICATE MAKER system was designed to streamline the process of issuing
and recording marriage licenses. The system allows an operator to record the marriage license
data directly from the prospective bride and groom, issue the official license form and record the
indexing data in a single pass. A marriage certificate can also be issued at that time without any
additional data entry. When the license is returned, the operator simply records the date of
marriage, book and page reference and witness information. No longer is it necessary to type the
information once on the multi-part form, make necessary corrections in triplicate (or void the
license and start over), record the issuance of the license and then retype the data for the index
when the license is returned.
The KPL CERTIFICATE MAKER system can run in conjunction with the KPL RODAP and
KPL VITAL STATISTICS systems, or it can run as a separate unit. The system is easy to use
because the entry screen matches the official license form issued by the NC Department of Vital
Records. Operators who are used to typing the form on a typewriter will be pleased at the ease
with which they can enter the data into the system and correct it. Once the data is recorded in the
system, the KPL Query system provides simple and instant access to the information.
The procedure for entering, printing, and recording a marriage license follows:
Enter the marriage license data into the MARRIAGE ENTRY SCREEN.
Print the marriage license on the official form using the report
PRINT MARRIAGE LICENSE.
If desired, print the marriage certificate using the report
PRINT MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE.
Once the license has been returned, record the date of marriage, book and page
reference, and witness data in the screen CONFIRM MARRIAGE LICENSE
Print the various index reports you require using the report programs provided
with the KPL CERTIFICATE MAKER system.
