Erie County New York marriage records



Buffalo’s Central Library has microfilms of early Erie County marriage records. For the period of 1837 to 1876 there are Justice of the Peace records; from 1877 to 1935 there are marriage certificates from the County Clerk. Information on a county certificate can include the groom’s occupation, and both persons’ ages, birthplaces, and parents. See the link below for a sample image. Information on a Justice of the Peace certificate is limited to the date, names and hometowns of bride and groom, and names of witnesses.

Note that the microfilms do have some gaps – for example, there are no certificates from December 1879 through May 1881.
