Re: NYC Jewish Temple (84 E 12th St.) Marriage Records? #general

Joy Kestenbaum

On February 21 James Castellan asked if and where a marriage record(hopefully
with the marriage parties' Hebrew names) might exist for a 17 July 1859 marriage
performed by Rabbi Samuel Adler of the Temple, 84 East 12th Street, New York City.

Samuel Adler was the rabbi of Temple Emanu-El, which at that time was located on
East 12th Street in a former church. (The building was demolished for a New York
University dormitory a few years ago, and only the central entrance tower was
preserved.) The congregation has not retained ketubot (as Shearith Israel has),
which would provide Hebrew names. Marriage certificates for New York County began
in 1866, although earlier marriage records (marriage registers) have survived,
They would be at the New York City Municipal Archives and also available on
microfilm through the Family History Library. See, List of Holdings: Birth, Death
and Marriage Records, Department of Records, Municipal Archives, and
Register of New York City Marriage Records (Family History Library, March 2006)
