Coos County, NH

Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy!

Coos County
(pronounced "ko-as" with two syllables)
Formed in 1803


Coos County was separated from the northern part of Grafton County, New Hampshire and organized at Berlin December 24, 1803, although the county seat was later moved to Lancaster, with an additional shire town at Colebrook. The name Coos derives from the Algonquian Indian term meaning crooked, the Indian name of the Connecticut River, which rises in the northernmost end of the county.

Our goal at Genealogy Trails is to transcribe and post genealogical source data so that family researchers can track their ancestors through time, throughout the country.

This county website needs a dedicated host to make this site the best that it can be! If you think that you may be interested in volunteering to host a county or state please view our Volunteer Information page.
(A desire to transcribe data and the know-how to make a basic webpage is required)

Join our mailing lists for researchers looking to connect and share information. You never know who you might meet and what family data they may share with you -- it could start a whole new branch of the family!
We also use the mailing lists to announce our website updates.

Remember to look around at the other states and consider donating your source information -- every little bit helps someone.

Please contact Kim if you have any questions or comments.
