NJ Death Records and The Greater Trenton Cemetery Project
Elana Broch, Regina Fitzpatrick & Mort Cohen
Trenton, NJ had a sizable, vibrant Jewish population of German, Russian Empire, and Hungarian immigrants beginning around 1850, but due to demographic changes and the exodus to nearby suburbs, few Jews remain in Trenton today. Two incredibly useful resources remain for genealogists: the local cemeteries and the New Jersey State archives. The cemeteries have recently been restored by the Greater Trenton Jewish Cemetery Project (GTJCP). The State Archives has death records and family histories. This presentation will cover techniques for searching census and death records, and family histories in the NJ State Archives (some of which are online), and a description of the GTJCP.
I've included the zoom link below, but if you like the handouts before or after the presentation, please contact me directly via JewishGen (select 'Private' in the email reply).
