Your contributions matter!
The work of the New Jersey Early Land Records Project is a multi-year endeavor, requiring the skills of professional archivists, conservators, indexers, and database developers. Your contributions, no matter how small, will help further this important work. It is the most ambitious State indexing project that we know of and your show of support is a “vote” for more projects like this one.
Donations and grants, of any amount, are welcome. Individuals and groups—including land-title professionals, land surveyors, archaeologists, lineage societies, historians, genealogists, and individuals who love New Jersey and colonial history—have already joined us in supporting this ambitious endeavor.
We especially encourage New Jersey historical and genealogical societies and those organizations with an interest in records from the colonial era to participate raising funds for this landmark project.
All project donations will be held in a dedicated project account and fund only project-related activities. This includes funds to contract processing archivists, equipment and materials, and database development, among other items. Additional sub-projects may include online mapping, K-12 educational materials, and outreach about the records, the time period, and the project.
Donations are made to the Genealogical Society of New Jersey, a registered 501(c)3 organization, and may be tax-deductible. Please consult your tax advisor.
