Don Cornelius, HCHS Manuscript Coordinator, will explain the exciting, major manuscript records held by the Society, show examples of each and explain how to search and access these records for personal or professional research projects. The Hunterdon County Historical Society collections include printed volumes, manuscripts, deeds, newspapers, maps, broadsides and photographs covering the history of Hunterdon County from the 18th century to the present day.
The workshop is geared for researchers who use the library regularly, as well as for beginning researchers to better understand the wealth of resources available at the County Historical Society. The workshop is free for members and $5.00 for non-members. Patrons must pre-register as space is limited. Registrants may call @908-782-1091 or e-mail [email protected].
