New Hampshire Genealogy & LDS Family History Centers

New Hampshire is one of the oldest states in the country, with plenty of fascinating family genealogy to explore. One of the best places to begin your research is at a New Hampshire family history center. These facilities network with the Family History Library in Utah, providing a wealth of research resources and assistance for building your family tree. A skilled staff of volunteers is on site to help visitors navigate the maze of books, print documents, microfilm and computer technology to find the information they are looking for. The centers are operated by the New Hampshire LDS church and are open to the public free of charge.

New Hampshire Genealogy Resources

New Hampshire family researchers are well aware that genealogy histories of ancestors are intertwined with neighboring states - Maine and Massachusetts, especially for early settlers who resided along the Piscataqua River basin. The University of New Hampshire Milne Special Collection is a great place to begin Piscatqua Pioneers and early settlers. Also at the University of New Hampshire, the Dimond Library houses a local history and genealogy collection.

Diaries, account books, indentures and business records are housed at the New Hampshire Historical Society. This rich collection of manuscripts is ideal for the researcher looking for ancestors' daily activities.

Researchers should not overlook local town and county libraries and local genealogical societies. Each has special collections, like that held at the Manchester Historic Association Research Center. Smaller town libraries may have archived City Annual Reports that publish birth, marriage and deaths.
