Looking for Genealogy?
You need to know a little New Jersey history before looking for vital statistics.
Think of Manchester Township as the doughnut and the Borough of Lakehurst as the doughnut hole.
Births and Deaths
Birth and death records are kept in the area where the event actually took place. If the person died in a hospital, you may be looking for vital records in Toms River, Brick, Lakewood or some other place. The Borough of Lakehurst will only have information for in-borough birth or deaths.
For example: Someone could die in ___X___ town. His / her Social Security was recorded (statements mailed to) as an address in a different town (or county) but was buried in a different state.
And -- don't forget that Postal Zip Codes and Addresses change. Up until a few years ago, the eastern half of Manchester Township had the Postal address and Zip Code of Lakehurst.
Please call or email the governing offices for additional information.
New Jersey Vital Statistics - Getting Copies of Genealogical Records: Birth, Death, and Marriage
The Monmouth County Archives does not hold birth or death records. You can contact either the the New Jersey State Archives for vital statistics records between May 1848 to May 1900 or the New Jersey State Department of Health, Trenton for records beginning in June 1878 to the present.
