Genealogical, historical, lineage, veteran, and ethnic societies often collect, transcribe, and publish information that can be helpful to genealogists. For genealogical and historical societies which have records and services to help you with your research, see New Jersey Archives and Libraries, New Jersey Church Records, and New Jersey Periodicals. Many counties also have local historical and genealogical societies.
