        Hello and Welcome to Monmouth County, part of the American History and Genealogy Project.  We are Kathleen and Richard Pettys, the County Coordinators for the Monmouth County, AHGP site.  Kathleen is a Jersey Girl, born and raised in Jersey City, New Jersey.  Richard is just a wild-eyed southern boy.  We host several other counties in other states, including Gilmer County, Liberty County, McIntosh County, Echols County, Georgia; and Brevard County, Florida.

        We have just taken on this county and it will take some time to locate and obtain all of the data available for Monmouth County.  It is, however, our goal to have a very data-intensive site.  Your help will be muchly appreciated.  If you can help, please contact Kathleen or Richard .  We do wish to thank the former CC of Monmouth County, Christina Applegate, for all of the fine work that she did in maintaining the site and obtaining information prior to our arrival.

        Looking for your family in Monmouth County?  Someone else might have that missing link you need.  Try our new and improved Monmouth County Surname page or our Queries Page!  If you would like to POST a query or view queries posted AFTER August 15, 2001, try this link as the queries page has not been updated in quite some time.  We will re-open this in the near future.  
 
        Need a little extra help?  Try contacting one of our  Lookup Volunteers.  These are kind people with access to one or more books regarding Monmouth County who are willing to help you by looking information up in their resource materials. We ask that you limit requests to three persons and provide as much information as you can.  
 
        Our volunteers will tell you what they have found and provide the source of the information.  They will not photocopy or scan their materials, nor will they go into the field and do your research for you, so please do not ask.
 
        Another potential source of help is the University of Michigan's Humanities Text Initiative, including "The Making of America".
