Groom's name in NYC -- using ItalianGen #general


Barbara Zimmer
 

Dear Genners:
There was a recent request for us to help decipher a groom's name
from the original documents. Since the marriage took place in NY
City, there is another way to obtain the data, by using
ItalianGen.org. In this case, I knew the bride's name and entered it
to obtain the correct marriage date, but the button for the groom's
name yielded no data. So I took the certificate number and went to
the Grooms List and entered that cert number with limiting dates for
Manhattan and up popped the result.

We can thank the volunteers at ItalianGen for helping all of us by
providing a great source for our data.

There is an even easier way to streamline this process courtesy of
Steve Morse (who else?).
