Town records, particularly for the early New England settlements of East Jersey, contain valuable information such as names of elected officials, lists of freeholders, petitions, vital records, deeds, cattle earmarks, and other documents useful in locating persons. The largest existing collection of town records for New Jersey is at the state archives in Trenton, and a smaller number are found at Rutgers University Library. The New Jersey Historical Society Library has many town records.

The Family History Library has microfilms of several town records, including Burlington, Elizabeth, Newark, Piscataway, Woodbridge, and towns of Hunterdon County. Search the catalog using a "Place-names" search at
