History and Records of Hampstead, New Hampshire
There are many sources of local history online. We've collected some here for you.
HAMPSTEAD VITAL RECORDS PROJECT
This database of vital records from the town of Hampstead, NH was compiled from the original town reports. It has been created to assist patrons and genealogists tracing their history back to Hampstead. We wish to heartily thank our volunteer Michelle Elder for her attention to detail over long hours entering this data.
Currently, records included range from 1888 - 1940. We hope to add more in the future. Records not included in this database can still be accessed at the Hampstead Public Library.
You may also start your the advanced search to find a person by first or last name, date, and/or birthplace.
Memorial History of Hampstead N.H. (Copyright 1899) contains interesting Hampstead history and photos. We have several physical copies here at HPL, but you can also access it all online.
Family Search – Search the catalog of genealogical materials (including books, online materials, microfilm, microfiche, and publications) made available by FamilySearch. Some items may be online, and some may be in print.
