What's New



 

THIS PAGE WILL BE UPDATED SHORTLY....

February 218:  NEW FREE WEB HOSTING IS AVAILABLE FOR SITES THROUGH USGENWEBSITES.ORG.  IT WAS SET UP TO MAKE SPACE AVAILABLE FOR USGENWEB STATE, COUNTY AND PROJECT SITES THAT WERE ON ROOTSWEB'S SERVERS, WHICH HAVE BEEN OFFLINE SINCE DECEMBER 23, 2017.  ALSO ROOTSWEB MAIL LISTS ARE DOWN AS OF JANUARY 25, 2018.  I AM ENCOURAGING NJGENWEB COORDINATORS TO MOVE TO THIS SPACE SO THAT THEIR COUNTY SITES CAN BE SEEN ONLINE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. 

January 2018: Unfortunately, in late December a server hosting some of our NJ counties has been taken offline, which is supposed to be temporary.  We have added the web.archive.org captures of our RW counties and those have been listed on the Counties page.  I have temporarily added new Google sites for both Middlesex, and Gloucester; they are available for adoption.

November 2017:  Linda K. Lewis has resigned as coordinator for Gloucester County, and also from Assistant State Coordinator.  Gloucester County is now available for adoption, but will need a new site built. 

July 2016:  I am beginning my review of the state site to get information updated.  Please be patient as the site is worked on gradually.  Thank you.  I have now updated to the newest URL the Union County to https://njunion.wordpress.com/  Be sure to visit the site.  It's looking great. 

April 2016:  A visitor to our site has advised that numerous links under Research: Military Records are not working.  I will try to get those updated; however, it will be a bit before I can get that done.  I have been dealing with a health situation and a relocation to another state.  Hopefully, during the month of July 2016 I will be able to get this corrected and the rest of the state reviewed for any non-working links.  If you find a link that is not working property, feel free to send me an email to let me know.  Email me
