In New England, the town clerk is the principal record keeper on the local level. The earliest records are called proprietor's records. Town records generally begin with the founding of a town and are kept to the present. Town records may contain records of births, marriages, burials, cemeteries, appointments, earmarks, estrays (records of stray animals), freemens' oaths (men becoming eligible to vote), land records, mortgages, name changes, care of the poor, school records, surveys, tax lists, town meeting minutes, voter registrations, and "warning outs" (of town). The original records are in the respective town clerk's office or the New Hampshire Historical Society.

To obtain copies of Concord records you will need complete  genealogical information.  The following are available - Birth,  Death & Marriage records since 1640 may be obtained from the City or Town Clerk at a cost of $12.00 per record..  

Records of Divorce since 1808   may be obtained from the State office or from the Clerk of the Superior Court in the county where the divorce was granted.   Cost per record is $12.00

WARNING: For both the Historical Society and State Libraries on Park St. If you plan to drive here the parking is extremely bad.  The parking police are quick to give you a $25.00 ticket just for parking two minutes in a space with head covers reserved for NH State Representatives.  Only a fraction of them are ever used.  Spaces are unfairly taken away from ordinary people.  The high-handed policing of these spaces is a black mark for Concord and a cost to the taxpayers. An unfriendly group, unlike the libraries.   You've been alerted.
