my great grandmother resportedly was born in Bergen NJ Aug 15 1866 or close to that year the daughter of Edward Riley and Margaret Egan. I can't find a Bergen NJ and in reading found that perhaps there isn't such a place anymore, that Bergen was assumed into another city or borough. I'm not clear. At any rate, I'm not sure where her birth records might be. The request for birth records asks what city township and county. I'm not sure what those might have been. I hate to give up, but I must admit to being a bit clueless and feeling on the despairing side.
Might any one have any suggestions or information for this 72 year old feeling stupid person from Massachusetts. Thanks so much in advance.
