New Jersey Death records 1878 – 1893

I have not done much research in the state of NJ and was rather befuddled as I followed a New York family line as they moved to (and died in) Union County, New Jersey.  Index records are available on ancestry, so I was able to confirm when and where they died but wanted more information.

I thought perhaps I should order the microfilm from the FHL, but as I read the description for film 589830 it was described as an INDEX that might or might not include more information.

I decided to check the NJ State Archives site and was so pleased with what I found. They have numerous searchable databases including deaths (now complete for June 1875 – June 1893). I needed records for1880 and 1881. PERFECT !


Select the death records database and a search box appears. 

Then the result is shown with an order option.

Hit select and a printable order form appears.

Mail it in with a check ... and hope great information shows up soon.

If only New York State would be so helpful !! (The New York City are this
easy to use also .... but the rest of the state, not easy at all).
