Hi, i am new to research in Bergen County, NJ and NJ in general. Does any one have advice on where I should focus my time and effort? I believe my family served in the American Revolution and is from that area.Lewis Shurte...which of course has a ton of spelling variation for both the surname and the given name. Sigh. Are there State Archives located somewhere? Does the county court house have archives? Where would I find land records?
