CD: The New Hampshire Genealogical Record: An Illustrated Quarterly Magazine Devoted to Genealogy, History and Biography, Volumes 1-7


The most important published work for New Hampshire genealogists dealing with the 18th century is undoubtedly this useful yet rather obscure work. This periodical was published quarterly between July of 1903 and April of 1910 in twenty-six issues under the auspices of the New Hampshire Genealogical Society. It contains a wealth of extremely valuable source material, but until now has been so rare and difficult to find, that it has not been widely known or used. These volumes contain vital records, land grants, lists of town officers, some cemetery inscriptions, several genealogies, tax lists, informative queries and answers, book reviews, obituaries, and more. As it originally was issued, this periodical had a complete, annual name index in the fourth issue of each volume. Since many of the articles were carried forward from issue to issue and volume to volume, this made it necessary to search through six different indexes which was a tedious process. In this new reprint edition all the individual indexes have been replaced with a single, master index to the entire set. This index was compiled many years ago by some unknown person, and has been available to researchers at the New Hampshire Historical Society Library, but has not previously been published. It is presented here courtesy of the Library, and will greatly facilitate the use of this valuable resource. This CD contains all seven volumes: Volume 1, 1903-1904; Volume 2, 1904-1905; Volume 3, 1905-1906; Volume 4, 1907; Volume 5, 1908; Volume 6, 1909; Volume 7, 1910; each individually presented with the master index. The book is presented as graphic images, so the user sees the work just as it was originally published. It is intended to look and function very much like a "real" book. There is no electronic index, and there is no electronic text to search. However, numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to move through the book. Image numers will match the page numbers for all of the main text, as well as the index. Any unnumbered portraits and illustrations are at the back of the actual file, to keep page numbering consistent.
