About Us Home
Cape May County was formally created on November 12, 1692 by an Act of the General Assembly of the Province of West New Jersey. Since then public records documenting real property, court and civil matters have been maintained by county and local government on behalf of the citizens.




This site is a collaborative effort led by the Cape May County Clerk and other local government partners including the Surrogate to provide access to historical records collections. Our vision in creating this site is to promote awareness and convenient electronic access to researchers while protecting our precious original collections.
