Finding New Jersey County of Marriage #usa #records

I found the listing of the marriage of Dora Goldstein & Nathan Rudman in 1943 on Ancestry.com in the New Jersey Marriage Index. There is no county or code for county listed. At this time it can’t be ordered from the New Jersey State Archives. To order from the NJ Dep’t of Health Vital Records the county of marriage has to be filled out. Does anyone know how to find this out.

Robert, The actual record can be viewed in person at the New Jersey State Archives. They have marriages up to 1948 available on microfilm. Perhaps someone who may be going up there can copy it for you.

If you know the town, I suggest homelocator.com ( go to search city/state).  An alternative is to google city name, state and the word county.

I appreciate the responses. However, many years of the New Jersey Marriage Index in Reclaim the Records & Ancestry.com which are copied from Reclaim the Records do not have any information in code or name on the location either county or municipality of marriage.

If you know where Dora Goldstein grew up and where her parents lived at the time of her marriage, then that would be a big clue as to what county she married in. At that time, most women lived at home until they married, and her parents would have been the ones who hosted the wedding, so that would be the most likely place where the couple married. If you check on Newspapers.com, you may be able to find a wedding announcement in a local newspaper.

Alternatively - you can check with the NJ Dept. of Health, to see if it is absolutely critical that you fill in the county name. You could check to see if "Unknown" is acceptable. 

When I have ordered death records from the NJ State Archives, the form asks for the name of parents for the deceased. Well, generally I don't know that information, but the state archivist told me to write in 'Not Known', so the computer thinks that the parent's name is Not Known. 

Another avenue - you could check with the NJ State Archives, via their email contact address. They may not be able to provide you with the actual marriage certificate, but they may be able to provide you with the name of the county, since you already have the year of marriage.

For 1943, the index just has the names of the bride and groom, and the year, all of which is already known.  It does not give the county or any other new information.

There are only 21 counties in New Jersey.  Can you submit 21 orders, one for each county, and see which one gives a result?
