About the NJGenWeb Project ....In April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the New Jersey comprehensive Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in New Jersey, where collected databases would be stored. In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index. . . .The person responsible for this county is Brianne Kelly-Bly
