There are many sources of local history online. We've collected some here for you.

Hampstead Records


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.
