Did You Know?

  • The colonial censuses taken in 1726, 1738, 1745, and 1772, as well as the New Jersey portions of the United States censuses of 1790, 1800, 1810 and 1820, were destroyed. Various other records can substitute for censuses. These include lists of petitioners, residents, freeholders, quit renters, jurists, voters, and taxpayers. Many of these lists have been published in periodicals. For a helpful guide in locating these lists, refer to The United States Census Compendium by John D. Stemmons (Logan, Utah: Everton Publishers, 1973.) The book is available at the Family History Library on microfiche and in book form. See the catalog entry for more details.
  • Collections of New Jersey maps and atlases are available at numerous public and university libraries and historical societies. The New Jersey Historical Society has a large collection of more than 2,000 maps, and the state library has several hundred maps and atlases from the seventeenth century to the present.
