A break? A hiatus? I’m back. #Genealogy

It’s been some time since my last post and I will say, I have missed sharing New Jersey genealogy news with you. While I have been busy with my career with Legacy Tree Genealogists, I still remain connected to my home state New Jersey! In September of 2020, I rejoined the Board of Trustees for the Genealogical Society of New Jersey and am working hard with other Trustees to bring the Society to wider audiences.

Some updates on the New Jersey State Archives include their holdings have recently received death certificates through 1961 (1962 should be available soon!) and the staff has created many new databases, including the Delayed Birth Certificate index (records mainly from the 1940s for births post-1900).

Another great announcement found recently comes from the Newark Public Library’s Newark Evening News Digitization Project. They have digitized the editions for 1883-1923 and have made them available online: https://www.digifind-it.com/newark/. If you have ancestry in Newark or Essex County, this resource is not to be missed.

Until next time! Happy Searching!!

  1. Oh, goodie goodie!! I have a New Jersey brick wall in 1783 and every time I hear news about more NJ stuff coming on line I get excited!

  2. I was just there on Wednesday and the 1962 deaths are available. Any hints to getting a part time remote job at legacy? Lisa Minerd Marlton NJ
