Interested in Genealogy? The State Library has great resources

Have you seen the ads about finding out who you are and you say, “I want to, but where do I start?” Use the Genealogy research guide at the State Library to help.  This Genealogy guide clearly shows you how to take the first steps and subsequent ones to finding out about your own personal history.  It tells you about useful print resources we have, basic information and what’s available to you at the State Library, the State Archives and NJ County offices. There’s a nice note from the Genealogy Librarian to encourage you to take that first step.  She is willing to assist you as you use State Library resources.  Another thing we have coming up in the Genealogy area is free classes.  On January 28 from noon to 1 p.m. N.J. State Library presents It’s Elementary My Dear Watson: solving Mysteries with Genetic Genealogy and on February 7 the class offered is Organizing (and Staying sane with) your genealogy.  So don’t be confused, there’s help available at the State Library. Take advantage of it and you’ll be on your way to being a researcher in your own genealogy.  For help and assistance, contact our reference desk at or 609-278-2640 ext. 103.
