I only lived in NJ for the first 4 years of my life (1944-1948). I visited in 1968 and went to Carpenter's Hall, but was not aware of how to approach archives. I have also been told that a John Chamberlin owned a farm/tract of land in Belmont, NJ in the 19th century...none of these stories have ever been authenticated and all the generations who told them have passed. reply on 10/12/11: Mr. Chamberlin Listed below is all the information contained in our member database. The family relationships are not noted but implied. I suggest you contact the Historical Societies for both Camden and Burlington Counties in New Jersey through their websites. Both have extensive records that will be available to you.
