NYC Brides Record Index

We have provided a printable form to request Marriage Certificates from The New York City Municipal Archives, which can be downloaded from below the search results after running a successful search.

This database contains an index to selected years of the Bronx, Kings, Manhattan, Richmond, and Queens County bride’s marriage records. The index is NOT complete. If the record you are searching for is not here, try other research avenues. This index was compiled from the 3″ x 5″ index cards provided by the staff at the NYC Municipal Archives.

The index includes the following years:

Bronx: 1899-1937
Kings: 1871-1937
Manhattan: 1866-1937
Richmond: 1898-1937
Queens: 1905-1937

There are over 4,244,000 records in the index so we feel it is worthwhile to make these available at this time. Be aware that dates like 25’05 with a year 1906 indicates that the event took place on the 25th of the month in the year 1905 but was recorded in 1906. This format was not used in all years. Another indication that an event was recorded in the following year is a low certificate number for a month in the later part of the year. For example,

If the event took place in December and the certificate number is 145, it probably was recorded in the following year.

Along with members from other groups that make up the Genealogy Federation of Long Island, members of the Italian Genealogy Group have participated in the indexing of Naturalization records and various vital records from the City of New York. An invaluable service is being performed for the genealogical community.

This project of The Genealogy Federation of Long Island was coordinated by Mr. John Martino.

We would like to thank Brian Andersson, Commissioner and Leonora Gidlund, Director of the Municipal Archives for their assistance in this project.

If you find an error, you may submit a correction; but it MUST MATCH what is on the birth certificate. All other changes will not be accepted!
