New Jersey Obituary Records
If you are searching high and low for New Jersey obituaries, you will be happy to know that thanks to the hard work of several individuals, there are a large number of free and low cost websites that have these listings online for everyone to see. It helps if you know the region where the person you are looking for lived, but it isn't required.
You can begin your search with the website for the Trenton Historical Society. This group has been working hard to preserve listings from the turn of the century and a growing number of more recent listings, as well. The Hunterdon County Historical Society also has a massive amount of older listings online for you to see. They include New Jersey obituary records from way back in 1825 all the way up to 1856.
Many of the state's leading newspapers and a good number of the state's local libraries are working hard to expand the number of old listings you can view online for free, however, the two archives listed above are the only two that are online at the moment. Keep checking in with local papers to see if listings for your area are viewable over the next few months and years.
