Getting the most out of this site. All the words in bright blue and the graphics outlined in bright blue have links to more information. Some of the links are within this site, some are to other sites of mine and many are to sources I found while browsing the internet. Links outside of the Cape May County - ALHN site open in a new window.

The Leaming and Yates Families, a letter
I have been following a lot of discussion about the migration of people from South Jersey to Clermont County, Ohio. Since I migrated from Clermont County, OH to South Jersey in 1982, I find this very interesting and amusing. I found a letter in the June 1940, The Cape May County Magazine of History and Genealogy, that, I think, will add to the discussion.

A bio of Rev. John Collins
(Another migrant from South Jersey to Clermont County, Ohio.)

 

Reminisces of a Working Family  (1800-1920).
