Thank you to everyone who responded to my question "How long should it take to get a copy of a
1931 marriage record, with both certificate number and date known, >from the New York City
Department of Public Health(not the Municipal Archives)?"
Actually I miswrote what I had done, but did the correct thing. The inquiry was sent to the City
Clerks Office, City of New York, not the Health Dept., because the year was 1931.
I received the marriage record seventeen days later!
