New York City Brides Index

This database contains the indexes to over 2,594,400 marriage records from 1866 to 1937 for the five Boroughs of New York City (Bronx, Kings, Manhattan, Queens and Richmond).  The set is NOT complete. If the record you are searching for is not here, try other research avenues.

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 took place.

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 index try the other index.

The New York City Brides index includes the following years:

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

    Please visit the New York City Municipal Archives web site for information on how to request Birth Certificates.

NOTE: Be aware that a date like Nov 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.

Records Search: Brides

Please note that the Surname (e.g. Last Name) is a required entry field. But since exact spellings are not always known, to aid your search we offer three different ways to specify Surnames...

  1. Exact Match ("is exactly") - This is the default surname search method.
  2. Soundex ("sounds like") - This option enables you to specify a surname spelling it out as best you can, and it will return results that "sound" similar to what you spelled out.
  3. Wild Card - With this option you can replace part of the surname with a * to match any number of letters, or _ to match a single letter. So for example, Sch* will return all names starting with Sch. Similarly, Schl_tz might return results such as Schlitz or Schlotz. 
For whichever of the above surname search options you would like to use, simply select the appropriate radio button option below the input field on the form. Although the additional form fields are optional, providing as much information as you can helps narrow your search. The more specific your search, the less time you need spend scrolling through search results!

County

Note: Leaving all un-checked is the same as checking all. You only need select any if you want to limit your search to specific Counties/Districts.
