Question: I have a batch of old photographs without names or photographers listed on the back.  I only know that they once belonged to the Miller family of New Hampshire.  Can you recommend a place online I can post these to share?  It is my hope someone may recognize them from the Miller family.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Answer:  I would suggest scanning a set of the photographs and posting them online at   This website allows you to put details about the photograph, or none at all.

Question: Do you have any suggestions for researching my 18th century ancestors in Portsmouth, New Hampshire?

Answer: NEHGS offers published histories of Portsmouth on the 5th floor. For primary sources you can examine Portsmouth vital records on microfilm, and you may want to examine Rockingham County Probates and Deeds for Portsmouth pre-1771. At NEHGS we also have a typescript collection by Agnes Bartlett on microfilm. This collection is simply called Portsmouth Family Records. It is on three rolls of 35mm microfilm located on the 4th floor at NEHGS. The call number for this collection is F44.P8 P67.
