Online Archives

The Camden County Historical Society’s archive and library are a significant resource for researchers interested in historical or genealogical information. We are in the process of digitizing thousands of photographs, maps, and local newspapers to make them accessible online from anywhere in the world!

 

Please note that our online archive only represents a portion of our physical collection. Staff and volunteers are actively digitizing materials and updating the online catalog each week. To suggest materials you’d like to see digitized, please contact Joshua Lisowski at digital@cchsnj.org

Members of the Camden County Historical Society have access to the ENTIRE online archive, but anyone can view our initial online collections and search the catalog at the link for free. When member-only collections are available, this page will be updated with instructions to access those collections.

Brief History of the Online Archive Project

In the Spring of 2022, the Camden County Historical Society received a Non-Profit Recovery Program Grant from Camden County Commissioners to make our archive more accessible. We used this grant to digitize nearly 10,000 photographs, 2,000 maps, 100,000 local newspaper pages, and our entire microfilm collection. These digitized materials only represent a portion of our archives, so we also purchased additional equipment to scan more materials in the future.

 

In September of 2022, staff and volunteers began uploading collections to our on online archive.

 

If you would like to volunteer to help scan or upload materials to our online catalog, please reach out to Joshua Lisowski by email: digital@cchsnj.org 

The Camden County Historical Society will be closed on November 24th & 25th.
