I know the years you are searching are not among the index to all boroughs found under vital records for NYC. There are these other registers though and maybe you will have better luck with them. I've never used the films below though. I see that 1875 is not there nor are the 1890 years. "There are no records between Jan. 1875 to Aug. 1876," according to the info in the link below.

i just recieved a message from lds.it appears there is a grooms and a brides index for manhattan marriages covering the years i'm researching.most likely the marriages in question occurred in manhattan i'm told.hopefully this will be the answer.

Here's a description of the two microfilm numbers they gave you. The film which has the 1894-1895 only has the letter A for those years.

fhl 1523042
Groom card index 1871 R 1869-1871 S-Z 1872-1874 A-Z 1875-1877 A-Q 1875 R 1876 R-Rimdid

I think this is the film you need for the 1894-95 record

all i know is i submitted the film numbers with the groom surnames to photoduplication copying service(free).hopefully they'll figure it out.as i said,lds got back to me with these film numbers.i gave them the approximate years of marriage-the time frames-and the grooms names.these are what they told me are the correct indexes.hope theyre right.

Well, I'm glad you are not renting the films yourself, as I believe they are alphabetized by last name of the groom within a certain year, so that's why I believe the second film is incorrect and the one I listed is the correct one.

thanks.thats one of several reasons i don't rent lds films anymore.did that frequently up until about 10 years ago.my italian research has gotten so difficult that its not worth renting several films at 7.25 each to find nothing-or to get the incorrect film.plus the closest lds library is 25 miles away.my local library is an affiliate library(which i set up)but they have a digital film reader which is extremely difficult for me to use.so lds film renting is a thing of the past for me.if i can't find it in the online digitized database,or i can't get it through photoduplication,i'll have to pass.

Film rentals have gotten very expensive over the years, which is why I'm glad that I did my own research at a local family history center back in the 1990s. Now I only do research which is online. I have been lucky that familysearch now has online church records for some of my husband's ancestral towns.
Anyway, I hope lds finds the records you need.
