Hi Terry,

A number of indexes are available to locate these records:
Once you've identified the borough and marriage license number, you can obtain free copies of records from 1864 to 1937 at a Family History Center. As mentioned in another string, you must access the records at a Family History Center. The licenses provide a wealth of genealogical information, including the names of the parents of the bride and groom.

Reclaim the Records has indexes available through 2017. However, records less than 50-years-old are not public records, and cannot be ordered. For records from 1938 to 1969, you can order the records from the New York City Clerk's office: https://www.cityclerk.nyc.gov/assets/cityclerk/downloads/pdf/mail_in_request_form%20final.pdf

I've worked with these records on numerous occasions.

Best of luck in your search,
