New Jersey - The Garden State
Interestingly, my mother told me of a "huge" wedding in New Jersey. This event happend when she was a small child residing in Baltimore, Maryland. The only clear memory she has is of "fancy dress" clothing everyone wore that weekend.
I am still researching various Horn families in the area to see if we are connected. There is a great website for the Camden County Historical Society where I hope to find solid leads. Also, we have yet to locate Elizabeth's grave in the cemetery listed on her death certificate.
Here are several resources discovered while researching New Jersey genealogy.
Genealogies of New Jersey Families: from the Genealogies Magazine of New Jersey
Genealogical Holdings - New Jersey Department of States
Historical Maps of New Jersey
New Jersey GenWeb
New Jersey RootsWeb
Rutgers University Libraries - Special Collections and University Archives

Jim Sanders of Hidden Genealogy Nuggets has begun a new genealogy blogging series.
"Each week the blog post will focus on a particular state. The post can be about a particular individual or family who lived in or was connected in some way to that state. Sometimes there will not be a personal connection to the state. In this case find a genealogy resource for that state to talk about and highlight instead. Follow along with this series and post to your own site. If you choose to follow along, please link to (http://www.hiddengenealogynuggets.com) or mention the Hidden Genealogy Nuggets website."
