Re: divorce records in NYC #general

Irene Berman asked where to find divorce records for NYC. On the municipal
archives site it specifies:

Divorce records may be obtained >from the County Clerk in the County where the
divorce decree was granted. For information on how to obtain a copy of a divorce
record: (212) 374-4376 - New York County, Manhattan.

But in addition, I've found an unusual spot for them: marriage applications
filed in NYC for the second marriage include the divorce records. These
marriage applications *cannot* be requested by mail, but are available in a
separate cabinet at the Municipal Archives. These records have been very helpful
and often reveal new information.

Happy Hunting!
