Connie,

The material I gave you came from a book - one of a set of four (so far) that a very, very special lady, Jeanne M. Hammell, spent untold hours searching, recording AND indexing records for. Ms. Hammell then put the materials, she found, in book form.

There are some CDs with NJ marriages on them but not many (that I know of) & most of those CDs are for the very early marriages.

It could very well be that the marriage record you seek was not _officially_ recorded. Ministers / Preachers did not always have their own church! Another thing is that many people, living in NJ, would sometimes marry in PA or even MD.

I had an instance where a couple married (in NJ) on one date (had a paper signed by the preacher to prove it) but the _official_ record contains a later date.

NJ records are not nearly as available as I wish they were!

Someone with the Gloucester County Historical Society may very well be able to help you. The staff and volunteers there are A-1.

I have been searching for two marriage records for over 25 years... Think the people married on Mars!!! :)
