The North Jersey History & Genealogy Center
Presented by James Lewis, MLIS
The North Jersey History & Genealogy Center in Morristown, New Jersey, holds an exceptional collection of material documenting New Jersey and early American history, including publications, maps, historical newspapers, photographs and postcards, original manuscript and archival material, rare books, fine art, and prints. The Center also holds one of the finest collection of genealogical resources in New Jersey, including family histories, church and burial records, published birth and death notices, state and federal census records, oral histories, as well as access to numerous genealogical databases in our Reading Room.
Most manuscript collections have online finding aids that provide detailed descriptions of the records, and our other collections can be searched through the Library’s catalog and indices. Join us for this presentation and learn about all the family and history treasures that wait for you.
