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

I have been looking for about two years for a marriage record for my

are greatly appreciated.
