RESEARCH TIPS

1. There are many towns around the world named Middletown. Make sure you search for Middletown New Jersey. Or you may want to try Middletown, Township, New Jersey and see if you get different and/or better results.


2.  Spelling out New Jersey worked better for me than using the NJ abbreviation.  I suggest you spell it out in full as well.


3. Search for Middletown, New Jersey as a subject wherever the source allows you to.  That way you will get information about Middletown, New Jersey and not just a source that mentions it.


4. The ProQuest Historical Newspapers database (see database section below) is an excellent history source for primary documentation.  That means it was written by someone who was actually alive when the situation occured.


5. If you plan to print something out, first make sure you go to the print version (text) of that source.  Otherwise you will get lots of wasted side-space. Usually there's a print icon or a link to print on each source.
