Trenton Research Services

The Trenton Historical Society is offering, for a fee, limited look-up services.
Right now we are offering 3 different services:

1) Copies of obituaries that appeared in a Trenton newspaper, if you supply the date. You can find on-line obituary indexes for the years 1901-1933, 1983-1986, and parts of other years at:

2) Searches of Trenton City Directories, one name for a 10-year period. Directories were published in 1845 (businesses only), 1854, 1857, 1859; then annually or semi-annually from 1865 to 1939 & 1945 to 1971.
3) Photocopies of images from Trenton High School Yearbooks. On-line listing of some Trenton yearbooks are available at:

While we will attempt to promptly fill any order, significant delays may occur. All these materials are copied by volunteers who access them through visits to the Trentoniana Room of the Trenton Public Library which has limited hours.

For these services send a self-addressed, stamped envelope and a check made out to the Trenton Historical Society to:

Trenton Historical Society
P.O. Box 1112
Trenton, NJ 08606


For obituaries include the name & complete date (month, day, year) of the obituary and a check for $8;
For a directory search specify the 10-year time period, the surname and make the check out for $10;
For a yearbook photo list the graduate's name & the yearbook name & date and include $7.
