Virtual Tour of Our County Archives Facility and Records Center

The Monmouth County Clerk’s Office is proud to premiere our virtual tour video of the County Clerk’s Monmouth County Archives and Records Center in Manalapan. The Archives Division provides secure records storage, filing, and cataloging of millions of County records of enduring historic value that are retained on a permanent basis. Its mission is to preserve these records and to make them available to the public for educational, legal, genealogical, and historical research purposes. We encourage you to watch our new video in which Clerk Hanlon provides insight into our facility and highlights some of our most precious record collections dating back to the 17th century!

Monmouth County Archives operates under the direction of Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon, Esq. The Archives preserves, organizes and provides access to Monmouth County government records of enduring historic value that are retained on a permanent basis.

We also work to educate the public about Monmouth County history through public programs and exhibits.
