The earliest regular newspaper published in New Jersey, The New Jersey Gazette, began publication in December 1777. This was soon followed by the New Jersey Journal in 1779.

Information from various newspapers, 1704 to 1782, was published as Extracts from American Newspapers Relating to New Jersey in the first series (vol. 11-12, 19-20, 24-29, 31) and second series (vol. 1-5) of Archives of the State of New Jersey. Each volume has an every-name index. These series are described in greater detail in New Jersey History. Similar extracts are found in:

  • Wilson, Thomas B. Notices from New Jersey Newspapers, 1781-1790. Volume I. Lambertville, New Jersey: Hunterdon House, 1988. (Family History Library book 974.9 H28w.)
