Bride Index

New Jersey State Archives has acquired a Bride Index for marriages recorded in the years 1901-1938.
This is a fantastic and much needed addition for locating elusive lines.

Some years are together and some years stand alone.  The amount of information varies by year, but provides the location of the actual certificate for you to retrieve.  Remember that an index is not a record, but rather a finding aid to obtain the actual record.

The index and marriage certificates are not available online.

The Bride Index for the years 1920 through 1929 provides the husband's initials only.
