New Jersey is one of the most difficult states in which to research your genealogy.
Several of the early census records are not available. Many early vital records were kept by the churches rather than civil servants, and so a great deal of hunting often precedes discovery.
The perfect resource for both the beginning and the advanced genealogy researcher is the NJGenWeb Project web site.
Individuals within a volunteer group have adopted each county in New Jersey.
In addition the state web site offers valuable links to general research information state-wide, including Quaker-specific, and African-American specific research.
This site is a must-see.
