This collection consists of robust indexes to marriage licenses in New York City reported to the Health Department between 1908-1910 and 1938-1942.
Marriage records are currently only available for Manhattan, but indexes for the other boroughs will be added as available.
In addition to the name of the individual who was born, in these records you may be able to find:
- The Birth Date, Address, Ward and Borough of the individual who was born
- The Name, Age, Race, Birthplace, Occupation, and Current Address of the Mother and Father
- The Number of Other Children Born and Living to the Mother
