Somerset County Historical Quarterly: Contents

The Somerset County Historical Quarterly, edited by A. Van Doren Honeyman, was published from 1912 through 1919 (Eight volumes). It is a valuable journal for those researching families of Somerset County, New Jersey during the Colonial Period.

Among the items obtained with the collection of William B. Bogardus, is a complete list of contents for all eight volumes. These are photo copies of the original pages which I have scanned into a PDF and are now available online at my Google Docs page. Go to SCHQ Contents. On the left side of the webpage are drop down menus. If you access the File menu you can find the option to download the document to your own computer.

It can be difficult to find copies of these volumes, as the journal ceased publication over ninety-three years ago. Larger libraries will likely have them. Hunterdon House does offer copies for sale. Volume Eight can be found online at Internet Archives. It can be downloaded. Perhaps the other volumes are there as well, I have not checked myself. Individual articles can be ordered (for a small copying fee) from the Allen County Public Library's PERSI Catalog, accessible through a subscribing library or other institution at the ACPL's Heritage Quest website
