(Only accessible from within the library.) Founded in 1845, New England Historic Genealogical Society is the oldest and most respected nonprofit genealogical organization in the country. American Ancestors is their online presence containing numerous genealogy databases.
Obituaries from the Meredith News currently date from August 23, 1910 through December 23, 1933. Updates are added regularly. If there is an obituary you would like sent to you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 603-279-4303. The library has the Meredith News through the current week, so we can also look up obituaries not yet in the database. We need name, date of death and if known date of birth.
Meredith Village Cemetery and Oakland Cemetery are currently in the database. We are working on adding more as time allows. For information on other cemeteries, please call the library or contact the town's cemetery sexton, Robert O'Neill at email@example.com or call 603-279-6352.
