Editorial Focus
The New Hampshire Genealogical Record (The NH Record) seeks well-written, carefully researched articles on individuals and families with connections to New Hampshire, including:

  • Family genealogies of two or more generations

  • Articles addressing genealogical questions, such as questions of parentage or identity

  • Transcriptions of records of genealogical interest that are difficult to access or decipher


We also welcome:

  • Articles on methodology, problem-solving, and novel approaches to research

  • Articles on New Hampshire that provide social, cultural, or historical context for genealogical research

  • Articles on topical or timely New Hampshire subjects, such as significant historical events and milestones

  • Articles on New Hampshire genealogical repositories and resources

  • Book reviews

  • We rarely accept “travelogue”-style articles that describe the research process; we prefer to publish the results of research.

Writing Guidelines

We ask authors to follow NEHGS style, as described in Stratton & Hoff's Guide to Genealogical Writing. All asserted facts not generally known should be supported by a footnoted citation, formatted according to Elizabeth Shown Mills's Evidence Explained


Other references useful for submitters include the following: 

  • Board for Certification of Genealogists, Genealogy Standards, 2nd ed. (Nashville, Tennessee: Ancestry, 2019).

  • Thomas W. Jones, Mastering Genealogical Proof (Arlington, Virginia: National Genealogical Society, 2013). 


The latter book is particularly useful for case studies.


Example citations can be found in our Citation Guidelines, Also, we provide an Article Template.

Articles and letters can be submitted as email attachments or via other electronic means to Publications Committee at We welcome your questions and inquiries!
