About this site,
 New Jersey American Local History Network

March 4, 2004

   Wow!!! The www has really exploded with information. I started this website in 1999, because I could not find NJ history information on the web. Now, it is everywhere. That is a good thing, but it can be hard to sort through all of it. Because of the abundance of information, my goal is now, to help sort and organize it, so that you can get right to the good stuff.

                                         Enjoy,

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.

For easy return, add this page to your favorites and then click away without losing the ability to return to this site. (I am currently working on making all the links, that leave this site, create one new window, so that if you want to return to the original page, you just close the new window.)
