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.

If you are interested in a specific collection, please note the accession or catalog number that is provided and bring it with you when you visit the Society to conduct your research. Information regarding the use of the library and museum collections can be found on the Library and Museum pages. If you are unable to visit the library or museum in person, please visit our Research Services page to hire a staff member to conduct your research for you.

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. Contact Reference Librarian/Archivist Malia Ebel at 603-856-0641 or if you have any questions.
