Marriage Certificates: The Office of the Westchester County Clerk does not issue or record marriage certificates.

New York State Resources: In addition to contacting local clerks, or the Westchester County Archives, you may be able to obtain vital records from New York State. The Vital Records Section of the New York State Department of Health files certificates for births and deaths that occur in New York State outside of New York City and for marriage licenses issued in New York State outside of New York City. Also on file are divorce records for all of New York State since 1963. The Vital Records Section provides qualified applicants with certified copies of the certificates associated with these events. Uncertified copies of older certificates are available for genealogy research.
