Volume III – Marriage Records Surnames
May 1918– April 1920
Follow instructions below to order copies
of Marriage Record Numbers 10001 – 12000 only.


The information in this database was copied from the Marriage Index Books in the Rensselaer County Clerk’s Office, 105 Third Street, Troy NY 12180.

While every effort was made to transcribe the data accurately and true to its original spelling, some errors may appear. When in doubt or for further information, the researcher is advised to refer to the original source at the Rensselaer County Clerk’s Office.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Filing dates and NOT Marriage dates were entered in most of the Vol. III Index. Photocopies of the marriage records, however, will show the correct marriage date.
Copies of the Marriage Book Record that was posted from the original source documents, (Affidavit For License To Marry & Certificate And Record of Marriage), can be ordered from the Rensselaer County Clerk’s Office for a fee of $5.00.
