  • Historic Wallkill Valley for 1903 (Orange and Ulster Counties, NY, and Sussex County, NJ) 

“Historic Wallkill Valley” was a more or less annual production for several years at the beginning of the 20th century.  Printed on expensive paper, with color on some advertising pages and abundant photos it was clearly an expensive undertaking, and contained many ads for area businesses as well as articles.  The articles in this issue included several about Walden, some material about cemeteries in the area, Wesley Grove (Neelytown), articles about historical incidents and locales, an article about Montgomery, various in memoriam articles, and an article about Mount Beacon with its cog railway.  There is even a review of the previous issue of “Historic Wallkill Valley” – something one does not often see.  See our Orange County, NY page for more information.

 

  • Boyd’s 1908 Street Guide for Philadelphia and Camden.  

This small and well-thumbed volume contains, in addition to all the streets in Philadelphia and Camden a century ago, you’ll find the following: a listing of named buildings, hospitals, changed names of streets, a key to street numbers, cross streets for major streets by area, parks and squares, “suburbs” (one might call them neighborhoods today), ward boundaries, piers on the Delaware River, places of interest, an index of trolley lines, followed by details of the routing of each line (some ran all the way to Newark, NJ), and finally the Camden street guide.  A portion of the two pages defining ward boundaries in Camden is missing, along with the back cover.  Camden admittedly gets short shrift in this volume, but the information that there is here is invaluable.  148+ pages, in PDF format, download now for $4.00.

 Street Guide for Philadelphia and Camden

 

We have the following New Jersey titles in inventory, but not yet scheduled for production:

  • Sussex County, NJ Sesqui-Centennial -- an Historical Address by Francis J. Swayze.

Delivered at Newton, NJ on September 2, 1903.  Today, no matter how much content was contained in an address, no one would sit still for a speech that was 67 pages long -- as this one was! There's a lot of history here.  Let us know if you are interested in seeing us publish this item.  A great way to do that is by joining our opt-in mailing list!

  • Records of the Town of Newark, New Jersey, from its Settlement in 1666, to its Incorporation as a City in 1836  (1864)

With its history of early Caucasian settlement from England, and from Guilford, Milford, and Brandford, CT, this locale is often overlooked by those looking for ancestors who, by contemporary standards, simply do not belong in Newark, NJ.  Yet there they are!  294 pages, mostly Town Clerk minutes.  We have no current plans for publication of this item, but we could be convinced to prioritize it.  Let us know!

  • Archives of the State of New Jersey, First Series, Volume XXI (1899)

Subtitled "Calendar of Records in the Office of the Secretary of State, 1664 - 1703," this volume came to us as a consolation prize due to an auctioneer error.  We're only beginning to delve into it, but, as a collection of Indian deeds, land transactions, occasional divorce decrees, indentures of servitude, and all the other kinds of papers that get filed, it is likely of considerable interest to some.  We'll decide how to publish it eventually.
