DESCRIPTION
This is a collection of records of marriages that were recorded in New Jersey.  Some of these records (earlier years) were obtained from the New Jersey State Archives, in Trenton, New Jersey, in 2015. They were previously only available on microfilm at the Archives, and were never before available online or in any other format. And some of these records (later years) were obtained from the New Jersey Department of Health, under an Open Public Records Act (OPRA) request in 2017.  Those records were never before available to the public at all.

This data was obtained by the not-for-profit activist group Reclaim The Records (https://www.ReclaimTheRecords.org/).  For the New Jersey State Archives' records, they were able to purchase copies of the microfilms from the Archives in late 2015. The films were then digitally scanned by the non-profit group FamilySearch in April and May 2016. Reclaim The Records then uploaded the newly-created images to the Internet Archive in June 2016.  And for the New Jersey Department of Health's records, they acquired the records through a partnership with a genealogist who had made an OPRA request in the summer of 2017.

All of this data is in the public domain.
