Lunch & Learn: Intro to NJ Genealogy – Jan 11

Friday, January 11 at 12:00 pm

Presenter: Regina Fitzpatrick, Genealogy Librarian, NJ State Library

Bring a bag lunch and learn about genealogy. New Jersey is one of the 13 original colonies with European settlements dating from the 17th century. NJ was the second state in the US to begin consistently collecting civil vital statistics in May 1848. In this program we are going to learn how to tap into these resources: first reviewing basics of genealogy, then looking at how to prepare to make a visit to the State Archives or State Library, and finally learning how to use the resources available at these sites.
