New York City Marriage Index Free online

According to the "Reclaim the Records" website: "This collection contains images of the index to New York City marriage records. These records were originally kept by the New York City Clerk's Office, and were later moved to the New York City Municipal Archives. For many decades the data was only available to the public in microfilm format, and only able to be viewed onsite at the Municipal Archives building in lower Manhattan." Reclaim The Records digitized the microfilm and made the images available in 2016.

The rolls of microfilm can be sorted by title and date published. A top level name search is not available, but once you click on a title, you can browse through the roll. Once you select a roll to browse, click on the magnifier icon near the top right of your screen. That will reveal the browse controls in the bottom right of the screen. There is a "Search inside" box in the upper right of the screen, that did not appear to be working when I tried it.
