Genealogy

Salem County Historical Society
Genealogy and Resources

Genealogy is an enjoyable past-time for people of all ages and for varied reasons. There is NO average researcher–our customers include students researching historic events, families looking for causes of inherited medical issues, those seeking primary documents in order to join a lineage or heritage society, and some who simply have a great curiosity about their family and where they came from.

Although online genealogy or history research services are helpful, they do not include all the resources that can be found at our library, nor do they offer the one-on-one personal service and expertise of our librarian and volunteer assistants to walk you through the research process.

Whether you visit us in person, or contact us with a research request, we look forward to speaking with you.
