From New Horizons Genealogy:
New Jersey took state censuses in 1855, 1865, 1875, 1885, 1895, 1905 and 1915. Not all are complete. In addition providing a handy reference for what was asked in each census, this page lists counties for which incomplete records exist.
Resource Spotlight provides a look at handy toolbox items I’ve bookmarked over the years.
As I just said, I’ve spent a few hours reconsidering and reorganizing my links section here, which meant looking — I mean, REALLY looking — at my bookmarks. I don’t want the links sidebar to become Godzilla, but that meant leaving out some neat bookmarks. Hence:
Today’s Spotlight is a beautiful little Google map of Brooklyn Catholic Churches.
This was created by Google user patatie in 2009, and lists a couple of dozen Brooklyn R.C. parishes, along with the dates they were established. I am not entirely sure that it is comprehensive, but it is a nice, quick glance at parishes in Brooklyn, and will certainly give you a good idea of just how localized Catholic identity can get in this neck of the woods.
I have a number of these little tools and snippets hanging around my bookmarks, and I’ll continue to highlight some of the more interesting ones.
