The marriage records for NY City are kept at two
separate agencies. Post-1950 records are kept at the
City Clerk's office. Pre-1950 records are kept at the
Municipal Archives. The records kept at the Municipal
Archives are generally searchable on-line through the
IGG and GGG websites. More recent records do not have
a searchable on-line index.

If you can't find a record in the on-line indexes, I
would suggest that you try alternative spellings of
names.

I have been looking for about two years for a marriage record for my
great-uncle and his wife, who I know were married in NYC, probably the

marriage record before 1950 would be at the Municipal Archives. Any ideas
are greatly appreciated.
