New York Marriage Certificate Lookup #usa #records


Hello all:
Need help to locating a copy of a NY marriage certificate. I have the marriage certificate # and exact date for my Grandparents in the Bronx. However, when I search the online Historical Vital records at the NYC Municipal Archives online which has the available years, the record does not show up by either name or certificate number. Here is the info:

Groom David Brawer
Bride Laura Labinsky( spelled wrong on the NYC index as Lablinsky)
Date 11/19/1941
Marriage Certificate # 12859

Any thoughts?

You might be able to locate something by its the Marriage License Application number, but it will only reflect it in the NYC Online search under "Not Indexed" using the "License Number".

I've been surprised with locating License Applications when I'm unsuccessful with the Certificates.
