Welcome! My name is Regina, I'm the Genealogy Librarian at the New Jersey State Library. Researching your family history can be a lot of fun, but it can also be hard work and overwhelming, especially when you're just starting out. My goal is to make you feel comfortable and confident in understanding the resources available to you here at the Library, and also at the State Archives and other New Jersey Repositories!
October is National Family History Month at the New Jersey State Library! Please join us for our series of lectures, beginning October 11th, 2017!
