MirrorNathan Palmer began publishing the "Burlington Mirror" in 1818 in Mount Holly, the county seat for Burlington County, New Jersey, as a weekly newspaper focusing on business and real estate concerns of the county. The newspaper quickly expanded coverage to include news, commentary and social events. Over its 130 years of publication, "Burlington Mirror", later known as "New Jersey Mirror", recorded the history of Burlington County in detail. Of note are the marriage and death notices from 1818-1848 (before NJ began recording vital statistics), excellent coverage of the Civil War (especially the Burlington County Regiment), detailed legislative and agricultural news, and local news from individual townships.

The "New Jersey Mirror" is available on microfilm from October 14, 1818 (vol. 1, no. 5) to March 5, 1947. The Burlington County Library Headquarters in Westampton, NJ holds the microfilm and will do research upon request for a fee. Please contact BCLS reference staff for further information.

The indexing of "The New Jersey Mirror" has been a cooperative project. Judith Olsen and the staff of the Burlington County College Library transcribed the newspaper articles into the database hosted by BCLS. To date, 84,127 records have been processed.
