Hi! If you don't locate a volunteer for the marriage look-up, you have a few options to locate the marriage certificate for your couple:
NJ Marriages are available for the period of 1848-1940. For the year 1916, the certificates are filed by last name of the groom. More info: http://nj.gov/state/archives/index.html
1) If you cannot visit the Archives, you can hire a researcher to obtain the copy for you. Fee should range $10-15 for this request. Visit the Genealogical Society of New Jersey's website for a list of Researchers: http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~njgsnj/profresearch.html
2) If you know the town, you can contact that municipality's health department to request the certificate. FYI, a cost for a City of Elizabeth search is $15.
3) Write to the NJ Dept of Health ( http://www.state.nj.us/health/vital/
). Fee is $25.
