I only have his name and time frame of years (1900-1907). Looking online,
the New Jersey Dept of Health and Senior Services requires city or county of
death, also the year. I have no idea. I would like to look at the whole
state (like they do in New York).
The New Jersey State Archives in the answer to this question in Trenton, New
Jersey. They have all of the death certificates from the entire state
microfilmed and available for use up to 1940 as I recall.
New Jersey's certificates beginning in the early 1900s are all stored by
last name and not by local. Earlier certificates are by local but they have
indexes at the archives. What's more the archives only charges 25 cents for you
to print a certificate not the six dollars you have to pay in NYC.
That's the good news .... the bad news is the archives is short staffed and
unable to do lookups. If you want to do the research you need to go in
person or hire a researcher to do it for you or hope you can find someone who is
going there to do the research. I have done research for many people at the
