Beyond Burlington County Library

Some faraway day, perhaps, you may exhaust the Burlington County Library collections. Frankly, we hope you will never will; however, no library can have everything a researcher needs or wants. And, truthfully, there are other wonderful collections to explore when researching your Burlington County ancestors.

The pages below will offer you links to libraries, archives, historical societies, and other organizations located in and around Burlington County and across the United States.

When you get to the point that you need research help from a professional, some resources are listed on our guide to Professional Researchers.

Happy Hunting!
