Are these records the same as the original marriage records found in the New York State Department of Health? Or have they been transcribed and/or summarized from those records? I'm confused! Thank you.

ANSWER:  The information from these records comes from the original marriage records.  The record details pages have been indexed from the original records.  When you find the individual you are searching you can click on the View Image link and view a copy of the original record.  The Wiki page gives you a good description of what is located in the collection.  It is a work in progress with records being added as they become available.
