Index to Marriage Records
Rensselaer County, NY.

A 10 Volume Marriage Index of Rensselaer County, NY
marriages from 1908 to 1935.

The largest project the Troy Irish Genealogy Society has undertaken so far is the transcription of the Rensselaer County Marriage Index. This 10 Volume Marriage Index of Rensselaer County marriages, from 1908 to 1935, has over 60,000 names. Volume I, with its 5,000 marriages and 10,000 names is the initial step in this major project.

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.
