Bergen Index (NEW!)
The first three films of the Bergen Index has been indexed spanning March 1875 through Aug 1885 (with a gap from Mar 1876-May 1877). There are seven films, and the index will be added to when the work becomes available. See the index here.
Hackensack Republican / Bergen County Watchman / New Jersey Republican
We are proud to announce that three historical Bergen County newspapers: the Hackensack Republican (Hackensack, NJ, 1878-1936), the Bergen County Watchman (Hackensack, NJ, 1870-1873), and the New Jersey Republican (Hackensack, NJ, 1878), have been indexed by GSBC volunteers. (Note that there is a gap in the microfilm between Apr 1874 and March 1878.)
This was a huge indexing project, spanning five years and more than 2,000 volunteer hours. You can access the index here
The NJ Citizen Vital Records
Indexes for Vital Records published in the NJ Citizen cover only 26 May 1871 through May 1874. The index is organized alphabetically by last name through the links at right. View the Index.
Once you have the information from a index, you can visit the Ridgewood Public Library to use the microfilm on-site for these titles.
If you cannot make it to the Library, scans and extended information are free for GSBC Members (please email us the particulars or full reference citation).
