Scope and arrangement
The collection consists of record copies,1869-1906, of the marriages that Rev. Francis J. Schneider performed in New York City. The marriage information was recorded on standard NYC marriage forms. The forms varied slightly over the years, however, the basic information required for the forms remained the same. The forms include name and address of the bride and groom, occupation, age, race, place of birth, parents' names, and number of times married. The forms are signed by the bride, groom, and witnesses. The forms are arranged chronologically and there is no name index.
