You might be able to find your property on maps like this one from 1928:

With the lot and block numbers, you can go to the County Records office and find all the owners and transfer dates.

Then you can take your names to the Jersey Room in the main library if its open and check the city directories.

You would have been able to get lots more information but many years ago there was a fire in city hall on the top floor where all the building department records (historically) were kept. You can still call the building department to see if any years were saved.

The online property tax resources I've found only go back 10 years or so. Is there a Hudson County/Jersey City property records office that can be visited to pull records? Any advice on how to go about it?


When we bought our circa 1840's house in the Heights, I went to the tax assessor's office and got a copy of a photo taken in the 1930's for a WPA project. I believe they photographed all the houses in the city. I planted a tree just like the one in the photo - still there today! It was a really cool look back. You may want to try the historical records found at the JC library in downtown, too.
