The Hudson Observer Death Notices
The HCGS has partnered with the Jersey City Free Public Library to index death notices found in The Hudson Observer. The Jersey City Free Public Library has the Observer on microfilm.
The newspaper began as The Observer and was published in Hoboken, NJ starting in 1904 to 1910. It became The Hudson Observer from 1911 to 1924; and then continued as The Jersey Observer until it was merged into The Jersey Journal in November 1951. Hoboken's most famous native son, Frank Sinatra, once worked at The Observer and had plans to become a sports writer.
Volunteers are needed for both photocopying the microfilmed pages and for entering information from the copies into a Microsoft Excel database.
