RESEARCH in New Jersey
the Research Page
New Jersey's first 'national' census available
is for 1830.
Prior to 1830 there are State Tax lists from 1772-1822, and
in 1793 a special State militia index. The U.S. Census records (for NJ) from 1800-1820
were destroyed. See the New Jersey State Library's
of the censuses taken in New Jersey and their status.
How do you
find out what county a township or city is located in?
The quickest way
I have found to do this, is to use a search engine (such as google.com, or your
own favorite) and type in "town county NJ" or "town county New
Jersey", substituting the name of the town you want to locate, instead of
the word 'town' in the example shown. Usually one of the first two or three resulting
web sites should provide that information for you.
