PURPOSE of the project

• Cross-referencing of Surnames often helps confirm marriages and pedigrees • Having so few SURNAMES in one relatively small area such as this township of NEWTON, Gloucster Co., West Jersey is a great jumping-off place for study of these families who were either immigrants or 1st generation descendants.

what you can do to help this project

  • When you find a new person who was alive in 1700 whom you think should be included in the project... Please add them. But please do not add others of future generations as yet unborn. You can always reference them by using the .url of this project in their profile. One goal here is to not make this project too clutttered with descendants.
