We are pleased to announce James Lewis as the new department head for The North Jersey History and Genealogy Center, as of April 8th of this year. James was formerly with The Charles F. Cummings New Jersey Information Center at the Newark Public Library.
We are also happy to announce the April release of Ordinary Days, Extraordinary Times: Morristown New Jersey's Irish Immigrant Past, written by Cheryl Turkington, the assistant archivist at the history center and published by the library. The book provides maps, illustrations, photos and narrative that trace the story of Irish immigration to Morristown and the vibrant Dublin neighborhood that nurtured generations of residents for over 100 years. Turkington conducted numerous interviews and relied on the vast collections of our library to put together this wonderful book. Copies may be purchased for $15.95 (plus tax) at the history center.
