About This Collection

This collection consists of images of an index to persons who married in New Jersey between 1901 and 2016. The database can be searched, or the images can be browsed by bride or groom, then year range, then surname. The index consists of the following details:

  • Marriage location

Note: In addition to these details in the searchable index, a state file number, a code for the marriage location, and the month of marriage can be viewed on the image, when available.

How to Request a Copy of This Record

The actual marriage record will typically contain even more details, so it’s important to obtain a copy of the record itself. The New Jersey State Archives maintains all birth, marriage, and death records filed at the state level starting in May 1848 and ending 100 years ago. Requests for certificates of these records should be submitted by mail, along with a fee, using the New Jersey State Archives' downloadable request form.
