New Jersey Genealogy in Newspaper Archives

As one of the first 13 colonies, New Jersey and our ancestors living in the state played an active role in the development of American history. In 1776, New Jersey became one of the founding states of the newly independent United States of America. By 1779, New Jersey representatives signed the first American constitution, The Articles of Confederation. Can you trace your ancestry back to Colonial America? Uncover untold stories and details in historical newspaper articles published in New Jersey local and state newspapers. 

Trace your genealogy throughout American history using the details found in newspaper archives. Find birth and marriage announcements, lost photographs, intimate stories, obituaries and more. Use the U.S. census records to fill in the gaps with valuable genealogy information.
