Re: Why two marriage certificates? And why different information? #records #usa

First marriage was a the municipal building ... ie a city hall marriage. Possibly without family and definitely not religious. Second one was done at home with family and likely a religious ceremony. Possibly they eloped or the family could not be there and there was a reason to get married quickly.

Not uncommon to see this happen.

I found a conflict between two documents on the recently released NYC Municipal Archives website.. I would appreciate any advice on this one. Here are the several documents on this case.
