 Monmouth County Vital Records

Monmouth Democrat

There is but one section [A - D] to these records. There are Obituaries, Wedding Announcements, Birth Announcements, Birthday Notices and some very poor pictures. The date range seems to be 1938 - 1942.

Some of the copy is poor, but most of it is fine.
