Welcome to Cape May County

How to Volunteer for Cape May County Genealogy Project

There are many ways that you can volunteer not only for Cape May County Genealogy Project, but the NJGenWeb Project as well. There are almost as many ways to help as there are reasons.

To submit information to the Cape May County Genealogy project, contact the County Coordinator for instructions. Please do not submit anything that is under copyright unless, you are the copyright holder or have written permission for it to be displayed by the NJGenWeb on one of our county sites. Permission for copyrighted material must accompany the material at the time of submission or the material will not be displayed.

We welcome original material, cemetery transcriptions, photographs, documents and ephemera that is related to Cape May County's People and its history. If there is a group or organization wishing to help with the placement of material we are happy to work with them in getting the material online. We are always looking for people willing to transcribe documents, index records, photograph cemeteries or other places of interest in Cape May County or any of the other New Jersey Counties. Our goal is to keep as much New Jersey Genealogy and History in a free online atmosphere that the only requirement for access is a computer that has an internet connection.

To adopt a New Jersey County needing a caretaker please visit the NJGenWeb Project's Website by clicking HERE. We do have a few requirements for a County Coordinator, but we also have many volunteer opportunities for just about anyone who wishes to help.
