New Jersey Family Histories #1, 1600s-1800s

These books contain two-volume set Genealogies of New Jersey Families. These books are comprised of family history articles that originally appeared in the Genealogical Society of New Jersey’s journal, Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey. Begun in 1925 to promote scholarly interest in New Jersey families, the magazine continues to be a primary vehicle for New Jersey source material. Referencing over 38,000 people who lived between the early 1600s and 1800s, this collection is essential to any genealogist whose family research involves New Jersey history. The materials cover the entire state of New Jersey and include all material and Bible records published in the Magazine from the first issue through the end of Volume 65.

What you can learn about each listed individual varies, depending on the original article. For the most part, this collection includes genealogies, cemetery records, church records, and family Bible records. These records may provide you with information such as the dates and locations of important family events, as well as the names of the participants, witnesses, or other family members.
