Title: Marriage for William MacKay and Grace Forrest
Description: I found a reference on Ancestry.com for the marriage record of William MacKay and Grace Forrest on 15 Sep 1854 in New York City. It said the information came from the NYG&B Record, 1932, volume 63. Is this online and if so, how can I get to it? I want to see what other information might be there.

Title: Ancestry.com ERROR
Description: Hello, Ancestry.com purchased that information (New York, 1675-1920 Genealogical Records) from a company and republished it without checking it. On the website describing that data set (http://www.genealogy.com/238facd.html) it is noted that the attribution to the NYG&B Record is wrong. It states: "Please note: The original data from which this product was compiled may incorrectly list the 1932 issue of The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record as the source for some records. The correct source is Index to Marriages and Deaths in the New York Herald by James P. Maher. "
