Re: Dutch Church, Monmouth Co.

The Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey (GMNJ) article, "Records of the Dutch Congregations of Freehold and Middletown" was serialized from issues dated January, 1947 (Volume 22) through October, 1951 (Volume 26), and from January/April, 1956 (Volume 31) through January, 1963 (Volume 38). No records were included in GMNJ from 1952 (Volume 27) through 1955 (Volume 30). If you're searching for a specific year, I can probably help you identify which volume and page it may be on, as I've prepared a "finding aid" to help me navigate through this extraordinary, and voluminous, collection. Also, there were two congregations, one in Middletown and one in Freehold. It was the latter congregation which was located in present-day Marlboro and became known as the Old Brick Church. Since the pastors kept only one set of records, it's generally impossible to tell whether an event (e.g., marriage or baptism) occured in Freehold or Middletown. The list of members, officers, and commubnicants is usually segregated by congregation, however.
