Re: Question about New York City Marriage Records #records

Having spent too many hours in the NYC
Municipal Archives, I can tell you that the
marriage cerificates are separate from Marriage licenses and applications. These two are bundled together and in the past, unless they have changed, you had to go in person to retrieve on microfilm these latter two documents.  The marriage certificate you could order by mail.  I would suggest you go to   to find the marriage certificate number, date and borough , so you order it.  You can search by either bride or groom.

Good luck

Hi everyone

I am new to NYC marriage records. I understand that not all records are online though a number of indexes are and that the coverage is not complete.
I also understand that you can order records here from the NYC Municipal Archive:

My Question is this. I have found an index ancestry for relatives:
Volume 11:


There are no other records that I can find for this Index entry online
What is the difference between a marriage certificate and a marriage license? 
And, is the information in the screenshot what I use to order the marriage certificate / license from the NYC Municipal Archive?

Many thanks
