The Jersey Journal Obituaries


In 2007 The HCGHS partnered with the Jersey City Free Public Library to assist in creating an index to the death notices in The Jersey Journal newspaper.

Volunteers were working to create a searchable index database for the library that would ultimately contain up to 50,000 entries from the early part of the 20th century. However, by April 2008 Newsbank purchased the rights to digitize The Jersey Journal archives and will ultimately make them available online (for a fee). Because of this the HCGHS and the Library have discontinued indexing the early years of the Journal.

Note: the indicies are for personal, non-commercial genealogical research only and may not be compiled, repurposed or otherwise used in a derivative format for commercial sale.
