The Freedom of Information Act has been implemented in the state of New York. This means that the local residents of the state can access their personal files anytime it is needed. One of the documents available is the state of New York marriage records.

Marriage records in New York are being used by people who conduct research on the family history, also called genealogy. The information that can be found in a marriage certificate is important in updating the family tree. Genealogy can help track the whereabouts and updates of relatives. Marriage certificates are also required when processing some government requests. Most of these requests would involve the couple such as insurance and property declaration. There are also some people who would request for a copy of a marriage certificate of another individual to check their marital status. This is mostly done by singles that are in the dating phase and would like to verify the status of their soon-to-be lifetime partners.

The marriage certificate in New York focuses on the details of the marriage. One would know when and where the couple got married. The complete names of the couple are also indicated on the record together with some of their personal details such as the date and place of birth. Important names such as the names of the parents and the witness can also be found on the certificate.

The Department of Health in New York is responsible for managing the public records of the state and this includes the marriage certificates. The licenses of the counties, Buffalo, Albany and Yonkers cannot be obtained at the said office. One can only request it at the county clerk office of each county. Records of other counties can also be requested at their local county clerk office to avoid the hassle of going to the state office.

Marriage certificates that were issued since 1880 are the only ones available in the state of New York. When the search is done at the state, one has to prepare a $30 processing fee, but this is not the same when the search is done at the county clerk office since additional charges may need to be paid. Requesting for a genealogy copy is only possible if the marriage happened 50 years ago. The state of New York only allows the bride, the groom and their immediate relatives to access the marriage certificate. The result of the search can be obtained a little faster when it is done at the county office. The state office also accepts mail requests but it is expected to be delivered after several days. The retrieval process has improved with the help of the Internet.

We are now in the age of technology and this means that technology helps in making our lives easier and convenient. This reason why the public documents of New York has been integrated in an online server. This helps the residents of the state to obtain copies of marriage records easily. The requested information is then displayed in just seconds instead of days or months.
