MyHeritage: New York Newspapers and New York Marriage License Records

The following is from MyHeritage.

Now Online: New York Newspapers and New York Marriage License Records

I'm excited to let you know that we’ve added two significant New York collections: New York City Marriage License Index, 1908–1929 and New York Newspapers, 1806–2007 to SuperSearch™.
These collections are valuable to anyone looking to uncover new information about their ancestors, especially those who had strong ties to New York.
The New York Newspapers, 1806–2007 collection includes more than 1.9 million pages of 56 newspapers published in different cities and towns in New York State, dating back to the early 1800s. Historical information is included on celebrities and important events in the 19th–20th centuries.
The New York City Marriage License Index, 1908–1929 collection is an index to marriage licenses filed at the New York City Clerk Offices from the five boroughs of New York from 1908–1929 and includes more than 1.5 million marriage license records.
Searching these collections is free. A subscription is required to view records and scanned images, and to access Record Matches.
Please read our blog post for more details about the two New York collections. Feel free to explore the collections and let us know what you discover.
