About Us

We are a group of volunteers devoted to preserving historical records of repositories such as cemeteries, funeral homes and churches in primarily northern New Jersey.  We specialize in records that are on the verge of being damaged or destroyed.  If you have knowledge of any such records, please contact us.  The expertise of our members ranges from DNA, general ancestry research with specialization in specific ethnicities and geographical regions, and the history of Newark, NJ.
