Reclaim the Records is a not-for-profit group that files Freedom of Information requests to get public data released back into the public.

The goal of Reclaim the Records is to get these record sets put online for free, for everyone. Reclaim The Records‘ first request was an attempt to gain access under the New York State Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) to an index of some old marriage documents that were stored only in the New York City Municipal Archives in lower Manhattan. It won this case and the data from 48 microfilms, which yielded nearly 80,000 scanned images and about 450,000 names, is now online and free for public use at https://archive.org/details/nycmarriageindex
