Re: Who Filled Out a NYC Marriage License in the 1920s #records #usa

I believe that the city clerk filled out the application with the couple giving the information but in at least three cases I know of, the name of the mother is incorrect.  In two cases the groom gave their step-mother's name because they had been raised by her.
My father who left home very young and married late in life, used the clerk's first name because he could not remember his mother's name; therefore, I know that the clerk's name was Margaret.
