Find your Greek ancestors in the FREE online New Jersey Death Index

Looking for information on somebody who died in New Jersey? You can do a search in the database for records of more recent deaths (2001-2017), or browse through the digitized images of the index for older deaths.

This was brought to my attention by a blog posting on Genea-Musings by Randy Seaver July 24, 2018.

"Your one-stop shop for everything you ever wanted to know about the New Jersey Death Index, with a searchable database of over 1.2 million records for 2001-2017 and direct links to over 500,000 digital images for the not-yet-transcribed 1901-2000 data. It's all there and it's all free, free, free!

What we have now, and what we're going to have

So, just to be clear, the following years of the New Jersey death index are still missing at the moment: 1904-1919, half of 1920-1924, and 1930-1948. We at Reclaim The Records have reached out to the awesome and helpful people at the New Jersey State Archives in Trenton, and it seems likely that we may be able to get some of the missing years of data from them, although maybe just the early years. We're planning to order microfilms copies from them, then scan those films, and then put that missing data online. But this probably won't happen for another few months.

That means that we might be able to get some or all of 1904-1919 and/or the missing half of 1920-1924 online in a few more months. We'll know more details about the exact years soon.

But that would still leave 1930-1948 as missing any index at all. So we're also going to keep working with our attorney to see if we can somehow force the New Jersey Department of Health to recreate those missing years of the index. . . . . "
