My question, which Allan Jordan gave one answer to, was why marriage
certificate themselves would be missing, >from the pre 1930 era. He
said that it was an honor system, for the officiant to send them in.
Since I had never encountered missing marriages certificates for
marriages that occurred in other states, for that time perioed, I was
surprised to hear that this could have been happening in NYC. I'm
curious if anyone else has discovered a similar issue, with any
marriages that occurred in NYC, pre 1930, and whether they have obtained
the license, to see if the marriage did indeed occur NYC. Thanks.
