1915 nyc marriage lic translation

Postby RosyDay » 09 Jul 2010, 18:15

Hi, I hope someone can clarify this to me.
My grandparents were married in NYC 1915.
I requested their marriage lic from NYC Municipal Archives and rec'd their Affidavit for License to Marry (one page) and their Certificate and Record of Marriage(two pages) and a letter of exemplification.
Do both documents need to be translated or only one and the letter of exemplification?
Does the back of the document need to be translated also?

None of the above.

Unless your consulate has specifically told you otherwise, the only documents which require translation are your own and those of family members applying with you (spouse, children). YOUR birth certificate, YOUR marriage certificate, YOUR CHILDREN's birth certificates, and so on.

Some consulates are now using a paid service to handle "Helpline" calls. Do not trust them; they give out a lot of incorrect information.
