Finding Aids

The following index identifies the names of research materials that are available for use at the New Hampshire Historical Society. By clicking on the hyperlinked titles, you will access the finding aid for the collection. A finding aid is a tool used to summarize the collection and describe how it is organized, as well as provide a detailed contents list of what is within the collection. It will assist you in determining if a collection is of interest.

Please Note: The New Hampshire Historical Society is undergoing climate control and energy-efficiency renovations. The Society's library reading room is open during renovations, though some research materials may not be accessible at certain times. For more information about research resources accessible during the renovations please contact Reference Librarian/Archivist Malia Ebel at or 603-856-0641.

Since all of our finding aids are not yet available, please return frequently as we continue to add them to the site or visit our online library and museum catalogs to search for other materials.
