[ Genealogists' Guide

Genealogists' Guide Genealogical research is just that, research — research that take genealogists from the Internet to libraries to courthouses and beyond. Although genealogy is not the only subject we focus on at the NJHS (a characteristic of many libraries), we have many resources that can assist the genealogist in his or her search.
