The Archives, housed in the Gardner Sage Library of the New Brunswick Theological Seminary, is the repository for the records of more than 300 Reformed congregations, the majority of which are from New Jersey or New York. [Please note that while the campuses are adjacent, the New Brunswick Theological Seminary is NOT part of Rutgers University.]
Part of the Special Collections Center at Walsh Library of Seton Hall University, it includes archival records of churches in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Newark, which currently includes the Catholic churches in Bergen, Essex, Hudson, and Union counties. The collection includes microfilmed copies of parish registers from 1832 to 1914, as well as individual parish histories, parish census data, church and school building histories, and oral histories. They also house the sacramental records for the closed parishes in the Archdiocese of Newark.
