How to Obtain New Hampshire Death Certificates

In early days, the vital statistics records were registered with the town or city offices in the state of New Hampshire. The vital events are inclusive of births, deaths and marriages. As the registration of the vital events was done by specific town offices, the data was well organized at individual places. The statewide registration of the vital records which was made mandatory in the year 1866 was not a major issue in the state as the town or city offices were asked to send the copies of the records the vital events taking place within their jurisdiction to the Bureau of Vital Records which was named as the centre or hub of the recording and maintaining the records of vital events in the state of New Hampshire. The Bureau of Vital Records was not established until 1866, but it has records from 1640 to the present. As discussed earlier, the availability of old or prior data is because of the fact that the registration records were properly maintained by the town offices of the state of the New Hampshire on individual basis, which later on was transferred to the Bureau of Vital Records in New Hampshire.
