Mercer County References & Lookup Volunteers

Following are listed many of the Mercer County, New Jersey, genealogy and history books, articles, and other records, sources and references that are available, although certainly not all. Feel free to request a lookup from the following books if a volunteer is listed.

Rules for requesting a lookup:
- Request a lookup only for titles that have a volunteer next to them.
- Please limit your request to a lookup for one surname (= family name or last name) per request.
- Please limit your request to a lookup in one title/reference per request.
- Please put MERCER COUNTY LOOKUP in the subject line of your request to insure the message is not overlooked or accidently deleted.
- In the first line of the message please put the name of the book, article or source you are requesting the lookup in.
- Be very specific with your request -- do not ask the volunteer to give you everything they have about a surname!
- Do not forget to thank your lookup volunteer for their time.

If you own or have access to any Mercer County books or other references, whether listed or not, and will volunteer to do lookups, please let me know. As you can see, volunteers are needed.
