New Hampshire Family Records - William Copeley. Taken from the New Hampshire Historical Society's major collection of original genealogical material, this work was transcribed from over 2,000 pages of old Bible records. By omitting the decorative borders and re-typesetting the textual information, this huge collection of approximately 600 surnames now fits into a nice-sized book. The majority of these records date from 1800 to 1900. Family-based sources such as these are important because they are often the only documentation of births, marriages, and deaths.
