New Hampshire Vital Records Information

New Hampshire Vital Records
The town or city clerk's office is the place where vital events are officially recorded in New Hampshire. Today each town or city sends copies of its vital events to the Bureau of Vital Records. Statewide compilation, however, did not begin until a law was passed in 1866, and total compliance was not accomplished until the 1880s. The Bureau of Vital Records was not established until 1905, but holds records from 1640 to the present.
