Victory Parade


Since the 1770ís Trenton has been served by a variety of newspapers.They are an amazing source of genealogical information little of which is indexed.In addition to the obituary, marriage and chronological index pages of this site that are derived from Trenton papers, we have transcriptions of various newspaper articles containing historical information:

Assunpink Block

Fire on Clay Street

Grant Chapel

Ropewalk War

Statue of George Washington

In addition to articles derived from regular coverage, a series of newspaper columnists have written about Trentonís history and its people.Chroniclers such as John Cleary, Sally Lane, Harry Podemore and Tom Glover have provided illuminating facts and interesting reminiscences that often put a human face on dry facts.
