As part of the Jersey City Landmarks Conservancy annual Preservation Awards in celebration with National Preservation Month, The Hudson County Genealogical & Historical Society has been awarded the 2013 J. Owen Grundy History Award.

The award is named for the late master historian and given in recognition of written or visual works or a body of work that captures and gives life to historical events, periods and people. The Hudson County Genealogical & Historical Society was selected for our "highly informative website."

Thank you to all who have contributed information, photos and databases to the Society to make this award possible!
