The Morris Area Genealogy Society (MAGS) publishes a 16-page Newsletter each quarter, which is emailed to all members – with live links and photos in living color—and sent by post to those who want hard copy. In addition to meeting reports, other news, and the North Jersey History and Genealogy Center at the Morristown-Morris Township Library (NJH&GC) acquisitions list, the Newsletter sets out previously unpublished data from this locality, such as old Bible and church records. The Queries section allows members out of the area to seek answers to local genealogy questions. The index to the entire series of Newsletters is available on this public website.

This page provides links to indices and other information pertaining to the MAGS Newsletter.  A print copy of any MAGS Newsletter is available to the public for viewing at the Morristown-Morris Township Library, North Jersey History and Genealogy Center.
