Old Bergen Reformed Church Deaths

Founded in 1660 and continuing to this day Old Bergen Church is the oldest continuous congregation in the State of New Jersey. As part of his book, “The History of Land Titles in Hudson County, NJ”, published in 1872, Charles H. Winfield included the records of Marriages, Births and Deaths taken from the records of the Old Bergen Reformed Church, and for the most part translated from the Dutch. These records begin in 1664 and contain marriages down to 1830, births to 1825, and deaths to 1850.

The list is alphabetical and contains over 1200 records. It may take some time to load in your browser.
