Genealogy Resources


The Msgr. William Noé Field Archives & Special Collections Center features a number of different research options for those who are interested in performing family history research using original and microfilmed nineteenth and early twentieth century sacramental registers from Catholic parishes and various local Catholic cemeteries in the Archdiocese of Newark as it stands today comprising Bergen, Essex, Hudson, and Union Counties. No affiliation with Seton Hall University is necessary to consult the resources. 

Information can be obtained either on-site, by appointment, or by remote research request using the form on our Genealogy Research Requests page.

For more information about our services contact via e-mail at: or by phone at: (973) 761-9476.

The map below represents the parishes for which we have microfilm records. They are color coded by county, with the largest cities identified in their own color for ease of searching. Please use this as a starting point to find the parish in which to start your research.
