Welcome !
Remember when the need for a county government record meant that a requestor would appear at the county courthouse to search through large leather-bound books? County constituents of the past expected that obtaining county government records would take time, travel, and effort. A lot has changed over the years as counties have improved upon recordkeeping methods and developed a myriad of record retrieval systems.

The technology which has made our world smaller now calls us to share our information on the World Wide Web. The collections available on this site provide documented evidence of what is truly unique and special about Cape May County and our ancestors.

I hope you find a treasure here to enable you to learn something new about the past.

My best wishes,

Rita Signature
Cape May County Clerk
