Tuesday's Tip - Check Out New Hampshire Resources on FamilySearch

This week's Tuesday's Tip is to:  Check out genealogy resources for New Hampshire on FamilySearch record collections and the Research Wiki.

New Hampshire is one of my ancestral states, so I'm very interested in the online resources available for the state, several counties, and the towns where my ancestors resided.

The New Hampshire page on the FamilySearch Research Wiki discusses the history of the state, lists the counties, the state resources available.

By clicking on the light green button titled "New Hampshire Online Records" the reader can see all of the Online Records available on many genealogy websites:

There are 14 record collections for New Hampshire in the FamilySearch Record Collections at present (type "new hampshire" in the search field at the top of the left-hand frame as shown below):
