Question:

When I visit NEHGS will I be able to search deeds in New Jersey from the 17th century?  They lived in the Western division of the colony which existed to 1702.

 

Answer:

I would refer you to the published abstracts by John David Davis of West Jersey.  This compilation include West Jersey, New Jersey deeds abstracted in the late 17th and early 18th century. The title of this volume by Davis is West Jersey New Jersey Deed Records 1676-1721 (Westminster, MD, Heritage Books, 2005) - NEHGS Call # F133/D38/2005.  You may also wish to call ahead and order Family History Library microfilm of these deeds to view the originals.  You can place an order for FHL microfilm on our website with this link: http://web1.americanancestors.org/Product.aspx?id=20705
