History Center

An Introduction to Land and Property Research at the North Jersey History & Genealogy Center


Tuesday March 6, 2018
7:00 PM
PLEASE NOTE: This talk will be held at the MORRIS COUNTY LIBRARY.

Join James Lewis for a talk on researching land and property records using the resources found at the Morristown & Morris Township Library.

In this presentation he will share what you can discover about your ancestors from land records.

Land and property research can reveal so much about how and where our ancestors lived and worked. Other family information such as the name of a spouse, heirs, other relatives, or neighbors can be found in land records. You might learn a person’s occupation, their previous residences, military service, citizenship, and other clues.

Land records may contain information found nowhere else, such names of family members, birthdates, wills and marriage settlements. James’s presentation will introduce you to the main types of New Jersey land records - such as deeds, grants, maps and plans, what they mean and where to locate them.

James Lewis is the Department Head of the North Jersey History & Genealogy Center at the Morristown & Morris Township Library.
