I am seeking information on my great grandmother, Christine Dautel who married Wilhelm Fritz, my great grandfather. They were both born in Germany, possibly in the Wurttemberg area. She was born in January 1864 and he was born in 1859. She died 29 April 1904 and Wilhelm 8 May 1899. I believe Wilhelm immigrated in 1879. They settled in Hudson County, Weehawken, NJ and both are interred in Weehawken Cemetery. Any information you could find would indeed be appreciated. Lorraine XXXXXXX

Thank you for your help. I am not sure where the Fritz's were married but I shall give the City Clerk of Hudson County a try.
Great! Anturalization records for New Jersey (sadly, also not online) would be another place to look.
