Angus Family History – ‘Boots on ground’ NJ research opportunity

This blog is all about my desire to be collaborative and share family history information, and this post focuses on some collaborating we could do, but unfortunately, I can’t take the lead on this one at this time since I am my mom’s full-time caregiver. Embarking on distant travels is hard for me right now. My big July Oregon escape was just that: BIG. But, it was also RARE! 🙂 But, let’s get back to that ‘boots on ground’ research opportunity with regards to the Angus family:

If you visit the New Jersey Historical Society website and look up the ‘Angus Family’, you will discover that the Society has the following holdings in its archives:

No. 615.  ANGUS FAMILY  Papers, 1838-1969. 75 items. Correspondence, business records, genealogical material.  Business records relate to Angus family companies in New Jersey  and Mexico, I839-71.  Of particular interest are the business records, 1849-71, of the Elizabethtown Steam Manufacturing Company, James W. Angus, Superintendent. Gift of Exchange and Gift Division, Library of Congress, 1964.

Seventy-five items! There’s bound to be something ‘new’ there. Perhaps, someone reading this has visited the Society and has gotten to see these items (or at least some of them) first-hand. If so, please consider sharing your findings and impressions via the ‘Comments’ section below. Or perhaps this post will inspire someone who lives in or near Newark to visit the Society to find out exactly what’s there (I believe you may need to call ahead). You can request copies, but not of the entire collection due to staff shortages. Since I don’t know what is there, I don’t know what to request. The contact details, if you are interested: 52 Park Place, Newark, NJ. Tel: 973.596.8500.

For additional posts, use the Search box in the left column.

On a positive note, my request for Angus records elsewhere was met with success, so I will be sharing information gleaned from them once I have had time to review them. They have yet to wend their way to my mailbox.

Happy Thanksgiving, All!

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
