Notes: Microfilm of originals at the church. The first item on roll 1455521 is for St. Mary of West Hoboken in Jersey City. There is some indication this church became St. Michael. The second item on this roll has St. Paul on the spine but there is no St. Paul noted for Union City or Jersey City so this may be an old name or merger with St. Michael. St. Michael and St. Joseph of Union City, were combined in 1982. All Items are from St. Michael's unless otherwise noted. Records are in Latin unless otherwise notes. Includes individual indexes for baptisms and marriages except where noted. Marriage indexes are to groom only.
