The Hoboken Kehila pages like the other Kehila's hosted by Jewishgen are a work in progress. So check back for updates to the list and too the other pages in the Kehila. Instead of providing "naked" links, I have annotated the sources for information in order to help find what you need as quickly as possible.
The Hoboken Historical Museum online collections has photos, a genealogy of the Schubin family, data from the Millenthal family, town directories which include the names of Jewish organizations and their officers.
New Jersey has a a great link to the state's genealogical resources called the New Jersey Digital Highway. This is a great place to find information without resorting to pay sites.
The Hoboken Public Library still housed in its 100 plus year old building has copies of the Jersey Journal newspaper back to the mid 19th Century. It also has the directories for Hoboken and Jersey City on microfilm. The two cities were right next to each other and their citizens regularly moved back and forth between the two. Digital collections cannot be accessed by non-members. A call to the library before a visit will allow them to organize materials that will interest you. A courtesy donation is not required but is suggested.
Hoboken City Hall The link will take you to the pdf to request information. You can not use it for a fishing expedition. You must have some knowledge before you make the request. Best suggestion is to call the clerk's office before making your submission to determine whether your records are still on file.
New Jersey is difficult in terms of accessing vital statistics, probate etc online. However, the New Jersey State Archives is the place to go for for the information. The line above goes directly to the page you need.
