  2. Hi, thanks for your site.

    I found the document number of my grandparents’ 1910 Manhattan marriage. If I order the marriage record from the NYC Municipal Archive, do you know if they send you only the Marriage Certificate, or do they also send you the Affidavit for License to Marry and the Marriage License?

    I need to find out my grandfather’s parents’ names and this info might not be on the Certificate, but it would be on the Affidavit and the License. But does NYC only send you the Certificate, not the more important documents?

    My grandparents lived in Brooklyn most of their lives, but apparently married in Manhattan.

    Thanks if you can help me with this.

  3. Thanks for the reply. Is this because they don’t have the Affidavit and License, only the Certificate? Is there any way to get the Affidavit and License?

    I’ve seen some New York marriage certificates from that era online and some of them had the parents’ names and some didn’t. But those names are definitely on the Affidavit and License.

    Also, I read that the NYC Municipal Archives has two different sets of marriage records from that era. One set was made by the Dept. of Health and the other by the City Clerk. I read that the one from the City Clerk usually has more information.

    So, it seems that there are a lot of documents that they don’t send you. Is there a way to get them?

    Thanks again.

    1. Why are you assuming the info you need wont be on it Marriage certificate? There are plenty of other ways to find the parents names that you are looking for. Im assuming you have exhausted all of these areas. So it is time to order the document. Its not very expensive and I would expect good results.
