NYC Grooms Record Index

Grooms: 1864 - 1907
Here is a link to the New York City Municipal Archives web site where you will find information on how to request Marriage certificates.
We have found what appears to be male names in the brides index and female names in the grooms index. If your search is not successful in one file try the other file.
This database contains the indexes to over 1,825,000 marriages recorded by the New York City Health department for the 5 Boroughs of New York City, for varring time periods from 1864 to 1937.
After 1937, there was no longer a requirement to register the marriage with the Health Department. All marriages from 1938 to the present are recorded with the Clerk in the borough where the marriage takes place.
Thanks to Robert Boeckle of the German Genealogy Group for all of the scanning and processing of over 21,300 index pages contained in the original index books and to Frank Sclafani of the Italian Genealogy Group for proof reading and editing the results.
We would also like to thank Brian Andersson, Commissioner, and Kenneth Cobb, Director of the Municipal Archives for their assistance in this project.
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 the following year.
