The Trenton Free Public Library is home to Trentoniana, a local history and genealogy collection containing books, photographs, films, oral histories, scrapbooks, business records, personal papers, maps, newspapers, and ephemera that help researchers explore the rich history of the City of Trenton, New Jersey.
A significant portion of the collection consists of local newspapers (most on microfilm - see the Microfilm page for a list of titles) printed in Trenton from 1778 to the present.
Several indexes to parts of the collection are available, with more finding aids being created and made available (see the Finding Aids to Collections page). We also have an oral histories portal hosted by the Internet Archives (please pardon our appearance as we work on updating it). Also check out the “Mapping Migration: Chambersburg in the 1920s” project that uses 60 employee records from the Roebling’s Sons Company.
