Vermont and New Hampshire Databases on

In May, I posted the list of New York databases available on the web site, which actually links to, the web site of the New England Historical and Genealogical Society (NEHGS).

I thought it would be useful to post the databases available for all of the New England states - perhaps someone will Google a town or record type and see my post and be led to a useful record.

For Vermont, the NEHGS has these searchable databases on their web site:

* Vital Records of Worcester, Vermont, 1813–1858
* Vital Records of Weybridge, Vermont
* Vital Records of Westfield, Vermont, 1793-1860
* Vital Records of Shelburne, Vermont, 1743-1896
* Vital Records of Putney, Vermont
* Vital Records of Hardwick, Vermont, to 1860
* Vital Records of Fairfax, Vermont
* Vital Records of Dover, Vermont

Of course, you have to be a member of NEHGS to use the databases at the site.

NEHGS is offering a $15 (single member is $75 a year) discount for new memberships through June 30, 2008. Alternatively, you can receive a free copy of the book, "New York Essays" by Marian S. Henry. This offer is only available for new memberships and only by calling the membership department at 1-888-296-3447.

Disclosure: I am a member of NEHGS and enjoy the publications, but I find that the online databases are frustratingly difficult to use.
