I posted information about this last Thursday.

Two things to understand, first October 31st is the last day the Marriage
Bureau at the City Clerk's Office will supply copies of the 1930-1949 marriages.
(No word on what will happen to mail requests sent to them prior to that date
or requests still in their files on October 31st. If you have not already sent
a request I would recommend waiting at this point until the information is
available at the Archives.)

Second the intent is to then transfer to the microfilms down the street to the
Municipal Archives. There is no word when the films will become available at
the Municipal Archives. I would suspect the transfer will take some time based
on the amount of film that will need to be transferred, catalogued and shelved
to become available.

I would strongly suggest waiting for confirmation that the 1930-1949 marriages
are available before heading off to the Municipal Archives or sending in a
request. The Archives is currently backlogged with mail requests taking about
six to eight weeks in many cases. I was there Thursday and overheard that they
were trying to finish up requests >from August.

The NYC Municipal Archives has had the marriage records through 1937 for
years-this is not something new. They also have had the index to marriage
records through 1949 since about 2001.

The "only" things new are:
1. The New York City Clerk's Office will no longer provide the copies of
the marriage records 1930-1949; and
2. The New York City Municipal Archives will have the records on microfilm
for years 1938-1949.

references in their research regarding a German Immigrant to Antwerp by
the name of VON BRASE, Helene ( maiden name NEUMANN) and/or a Polish
(Stateless at that time) immigrant named VOGEL, Ide.

They were both deported >from Mechelen on Convoy XII 10 Oct 1942.

I have their files and information, however am interested in any reference
to their life in Antwerp.

Thank you,
