Requesting people check their NY marriage records to see if weddings were officiated by Cantor Rev. Jacob KELMANSKY or Rabbi Barnett LEVINE/Bernet LEVIN #usa #records

As it turns out, officiants on marriage records are not indexed by Ancestry or FamilySearch, so am I asking if people could check any New York Marriage records they have (most likely Manhattan, Kings/Brooklyn or Queens counties, but perhaps they went to others) to see if either the cantor Jacob KELMANSKY (who listed himself as a Rev on the records I've seen) or Rabbi Barnett LEVINE/alternate spelling Barnet LEVIN (who occasonally went by Rev too) might have officiated at their relatives' weddings.  

The time frames and other info I have: Jacob arrived in 1906 and died in 1964; he was affiliated with Congregation Beth Jacob Anshe Sholom which later became Congregation Beth Jacob Ohev Sholom (it was on Rodney Street in Brooklyn where he lived). I have not found that Barnett was affiliated with a synagogue, but do know he lived in Manhattan and passed away in 1936.

Thank you SO much for helping learn more about each of them.
