Special Publications

In accord with our goals to publish and make available genealogical material, the following special publications have been produced. If you are seeking vital records on New Hampshire people--and in many cases Maine and Massachusetts as well--check out these publications as you will find records here that you haven't been able to find anywhere else!

Historical Memoranda concerning Persons and Places in Old Dover, N.H. Volume II.
If you have had the pleasure of reading "Brewster's Rambles About Portsmouth", "Gathered Sketches from the Early History of New Hampshire and Vermont" or Volume I of "Historical Memoranda", you will certainly have a feel as to what is to be found in this follow-up to the 1900 volume published by John Scales, editor to the "Dover Enquirer." Transcribed and Edited by William Edgar Wentworth. With 500 pages, 50 of them as full name index, Volume II contains information that was not included in the first edition including expanded early family sketches of the period, town historical notes as well valuable information on early mills and other businesses. Index lists nearly 1400 surnames. Hardcover, cloth.

New Hampshire Families in 1790
The New Hampshire Society of Genealogists is undertaking a project to document all of the families living in New Hampshire at the time of the 1790 census. This effort is similar to the successful Maine Families in 1790 publications which have been done by the Maine Genealogical Society.  Index online.

The Journals of Enoch Hayes Place, 1810-1865 (2 volumes)
Transcribed by William Edgar Wentworth, Rev Place's 151 journals supply an unparalleled resource for the early 1800's. Place presided at thousands of burials, baptisms, and marriages over 50 years in eastern New Hampshire and Maine.
 
Vital Records from the Exeter News-Letter, 1831-1865 (5 Volumes)
Compiled by Scott Chipman, this series includes vital records for a period that is often very difficult to research because of lack of public records. Records include areas of New Hampshire, Maine and Massachusetts.
 
Vital Records from Dover, New Hampshire's First Newspaper, 1790-1829
This book includes vital records printed in the Dover, New Hampshire newspaper during the period 1790-1829.
