We’ll be short and only when there’s news to share.
1. Belleville Sons Honor Roll
The project that began more than 15 years ago, to identify and remember the fallen soldiers from Belleville, N.J., is having long-term effects.
In the past 13 months, Belleville has dedicated thirteen street signs to fallen soldiers from the Civil War, World War I, World War II, Vietnam War and the Cold War.
If we look back at 1999, the Belleville Memorial had a partial list of the lost soldiers, sailors and Marines lost in service. In 2005, using the names of the fallen discovered in my research, the town added more than 150 names, where there had been none, to its Belleville Veterans Memorial on Union Avenue.
The research continues as we learn more information about these Belleville Sons from their families as we prepare to dedicate street signs in their memory.

2. Nutley Sons Honor Roll
Don’t tell anyone yet, but we are continuing in our effort to work with the powers-that-be in Nutley to dedicate streets signs for the 140 fallen Nutley Sons.
3. Book Projects
You may be aware Anthony is juggling three book projects. One project is Nutley Notables Volume 2.
Another project involves research into murder, mayhem and major crime in a typical north Jersey town.
And the third book is that Mosquito Man book simmering on a back burner.
4. Other Stuff
Anthony continues to shoot photographs around town during his walks. There’s a Facebook page for that.
He also created a Facebook group for Nutleyphotos, old and new. He also moderates Belleville and Nutley groups.
Anthony also maintains the websites and Facebook groups for Kingsland Manor and the Nutley Historical Society.
Don’t forget, books make great holiday gifts. Anthony’s books are all available on Amazon.
