Planning a trip to New Jersey




I am considering a trip to New Jersey in the hope it will help me find the records I am lacking to prove my Tinsman lineage.  I am well aware of the family being the in Alexandria, Franklin, Alexander Tract, Barker Tract and being in the region in the mid 1700s.


I browsed the Hunterdon County Historical Society webpages earlier today and found that their Library is open on Thursdays from 1200 until 1600.  I also noticed they are also open on the second and fourth Saturdays from 10-4.  I wonder if I can get there Thursday for a session, then head to Trenton or another location on Friday, then return for the remainder of my time on Saturday.


I did browse their collections, but really have no idea where to start, but I bet there are going to be some smart and helpful people at the library.

After talking to the bride, we have considered making this trip together.  That is awesome for me as I love having someone else along to discuss findings and consider options with.  We are thinking of merging this with a stop in Philadelphia so we can look at broader PA records and there is rumor that Phily has a large portion of the Quaker records from early colonial times in New Jersey.


Should be worth the trip.

We have spent far too much time in front of our computers and need to get out more to research centers, archives, libraries, and court houses. I am so looking forward to this trip!
