The New Jersey State Library is closed for walk-in service, but Reference Staff are available for assistance at email@example.com.
The New Jersey State Library has a large collection of Secondary Resources including Family Histories, Indexes to Primary Resources, and regional Genealogy publications from all over the world. In addition, we also have Reference Genealogy How-To Books, Genealogy Periodicals, and a large New Jersey City Directories collection. Other than our NJ City Directories, available Primary Documents include: Non New Jersey City Directories, Federal and New Jersey Censuses, and a large Newspaper Collection. Our Electronic Resources include a digitized copy of William Stryker's Officers and Men of New Jersey in the Civil War (browsable, here's a searchable interface), Ancestry.com (in house use only), HeritageQuest Online, and NewsBank, which contains access to the Historic Trenton Times database. See below for further details!
