Question:  I have a couple New Hampshire births post-1900 I am looking for.  Both occured in a small town in Grafton County in 1916 and 1923.  The town clerk has never responded, and the state wont sent me a copy.  Do you have any suggestions?

 

Answer: If you have the date of the birth you can try the small town newspaper.  The birth may have been recorded, these records were common news for a small town paper.  Also you want to try the Town reports.  In New Hampshire town reports you will find the births, marriages and deaths for the town.  These will usually be filed at the public library as well as the State Library in Concord, New Hampshire.
