History in the Making

American families have been growing and changing in New Jersey since Dutch colonialists first settled in the area in the early 17th century, with the entire modern state becoming a territory of England in 1664. New Jersey has long been a melting pot of ethnicity and religion, with Scots, Dutch, New Englanders, Quakers, and Anglicans all among the initial immigrants to the province, as well as a second wave of immigrants from other colonies rather than directly from Europe.

Since the original influx of immigration to the colony, elaborate and intricate family trees have put their roots in New Jersey Soil, and genealogy projects help to preserve our heritage and ancestry in a manner which allows us to celebrate the past and better our understanding of our history. We can trace the lineage of these peoples as they travel west across the United States, including places like Dallas, Texas and Denver, Colorado.

Proudly supported by unionlawfirm.com, NJ Genealogy is a resource for anyone interested in exploring the history and ancestry of the state.
