Derry Public Library http://genealogy2012.wordpress.com/
The library has a useful collection of family genealogy books, Town and State Histories, Town Reports, and local obituary newspaper clippings from the 1980’s to present time. A search of our catalog by call number HIST will find many of these reference books.
Microfilm and digital files:
Several historical newspapers and many Town records including vital statistics are available on Microfilm. Newspapers are also available as digital pdf files on CD.
We regret that due to limited staffing, we are unable to offer more than very quick searches, for known dates, on request. Copies made by staff or library users will cost 10 cents each.
