I am creating a citation for a 1966 marriage in Manhattan. I first learned of the marriage at Ancestry and that is what I would like to cite. Ancestry has something they term "New York State, Marriage Index, 1881-1967". In reading more about it, I am not convinced that the original data is as represented at https://www.ancestry.com/search/collections/61632/. Ancestry refers to a New York State Marriage Index, New York State Department of Health, Albany, NY. However, New York City records are typically not part of NY State records. I reviewed the same marriage at FamilySearch and see they cite their source as Reclaim the Records, The NYC Marriage Index, and that it came from the New York City Clerk's Office. I still would want to cite Ancestry. Even though their source is unclear, would my citation be:
“New York State, Marriage Index, 1881-1967,” database, Ancestry (https://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?dbid=61632&h=100206810&indiv=try: accessed 23 Nov 2021), Ann E Kent to Allan Witztum, 10 Aug 1966, cert# 42900; citing “New York State Marriage Index,” New York State Department of Health, Albany, NY. See FamilySearch for an alternate source (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QLS5-THWK : accessed 23 Nov 2021).
I would appreciate your feedback.
