Many genealogists are also historians and know many local history buffs. Therefore, I thought it appropriate to post a message here about the stolen artifacts.
The board of Cape May County (New Jersey) Historical and Genealogical Society, which operates the county Historical Museum, 504 Route 9 North, Court House, has approved a $1,000 reward for the recovery of a collection of stolen whaling implements.
Anyone with information about the stolen items, which include six whaling implements, with a total value of $3,500 that were stolen from the museum some time between June 2 at 2 p.m. and the morning of June 5.
Information can be called to the museum directly (609) 465-3535 or Middle Township police (609) 465-8700.
