Description:
From Reclaim the Records, the NYC Marriage Index was shared to the world on the Internet Archive. Unlike the marriage certificate index that has been available for years, this index is for the Application, Affidavit, and License record group. These records include the addresses of the witnesses, the towns of birth for bride and groom, countries of birth of the parents, former spouses and divorce information, and the bride's occupation. Sometimes a license was filled out but no marriage took place as well, so that would provide even more information about the lives of our ancestors.
Instructions:
Fill in "Groom" or "Bride" for gender. Grooms are on the left side page; brides are on the right.
If there is a middle initial, or multiple given names, fill them all into the Given Name field.
If there is no date of marriage given, fill in the year range for the set, in this case, 1908-1910.
List the months as they are shown, or alternatively with the more modern abbreviation for the month.
