Genealogical, historical, lineage, veterans, fraternal, family name, and ethnic societies often transcribe and publish records useful to family historians. Local genealogical societies often help family history researchers contact local record searchers or copy records that mention ancestors. A current list of societies, archives, and libraries can be found on several Internet sites. Many of these organizations have their own Internet sites.

For New Hampshire genealogical and historical societies that have records and services to help you with your research, see New Hampshire Archives and Libraries, New Hampshire Church Records, and Periodicals. Many counties also have local historical and genealogical societies. You can find local society addresses by using directories cited in the United States Societies Wiki article.
