JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Details on Newark Evening News name index? #general

Alex Bender <alemik@...>

I've heard that there is a name index in book form of the Newark
Evening News. I went online and searched for more information on
this item, but wasn't very successful. I'd appreciate it if somebody
could tell me exactly what the book indexes - supposedly it's every
name that ever appeared in the newspaper. What range of years
does it index? Does it simply list names and the dates of papers in
which they appear?

I am in California. Is there any way for me to access the index
and/or the paper archives without traveling to New Jersey?

This would be quite valuable to me, as my grandfather was a
journalist at the paper, and many other ancestors either died or
were married in Newark. Thanks for any pointers.
