Three updated New England databases

Today we’ve updated three databases that focus on three different towns throughout New England: Hinsdale, MA; Newport, RI and Nottingham West also known as Hudson, NH. These databases, based on manuscripts from the R. Stanton Avery Special Collections are now searchable by first name and last name, location, record type, date, and family members (where available). The page images from the original manuscripts were also added to these revamped databases.

These three updates are part of an on-going project to update some of our older databases that were formerly not indexed in as much detail on our website.

The updated databases include:

Hinsdale, MA: Records of the Congregational Church, 1797-1848
Newport, RI: Members of the Artillery Company of Newport, 1741-1854
Nottingham West (Hudson), NH: Records of First Church of Christ, 1737-1795

We’d like to thank the following volunteers for their work to make these updates possible: Tate Lehmann, Linda Weaver, Ida Nystrom, Margaret Parker and Nancy Borman.
