Marriage license needed: Brooklyn, 1926 #usa #records


Bob Silverstein
 

I found the index to the license for a marriage in Brooklyn in 1926 but how can I find the license itself?

Thanks.

These are held at the NYC Municipal Archives
Room 103, 31 Chambers Street in lower Manhattan.

You can order the marriage license and application by giving them the names of the two people, the date ,the application number
And the borough .  I believe you can get order applications online and must include a check
as payment.

You can also get it in person at the archives.
Hope this helps.

Try contain all the information in a marriage certificate but also include a persons place of employment . But also remember there is no guarantee that the info is correct or complete.
Go to stevemorse.org and see is you can find the bride and grooms names to see if you have the correct couple.
 
In the meantime I will look up the record I have and see if there is any more relevant info that might be useful.  Also check on familysearch.org as they sometimes have marriage certificates online.

It has to be done by mail order I believe. The Municipal Archives is closed to the public due to the pandemic as are most other document repositories in NYC and elsewhere,

Ask the local Marriage Office and the local Archives.

Thanks everybody for your help.  I was ready to order from the NYC archive but thanks to Diane for her suggestion, I went to Steve Morse.  I could not find the marriage record at familysearch but Steve did.  I have contacted the local family history center for their help.

If it is a 2nd marriage, then the marriage license application will tell you what happened to the first marriage.
The marriage certificate will not provide that information.

I think that I have seen that the NYC Municipal Archives now has an online request form for the license.

Richard, thanks for the response.  That is why you have to see both and, preferably, the original to check spellings.  The Archives does have an online order form.

If you are on facebook join the  New York City Genealogy group.  Its a fabulous group.  You then have two options.  1)  if you have a FHC close to you then look for instructions in the announcements on how to access the wifi from your local FHC with your laptop and you can get the record yourself.  I want to say that FS has a glitch and Manhattan records don't show up in the search. The other option is to request a "parking lot angel"  to retrieve the record for you.  It usually takes a few days and there is no charge.  either way.... look for the announcements and the threads where you should post your request.   They post a new thread every few days for regular records and then a separate one for Manhattan records.   I have gotten many records over the last 9 months.   Good luck.
