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 (or learn to) 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.

 

 

Grafton County was formed in 1769
Grafton was one five original counties. It was named for Augustus FitzRoy, 3rd Duke of Grafton, who had been a supporter of American causes in Parliament, and who was serving as British Prime Minister at the time. The county was organized at Woodsville in 1771, and originally included the entire northern frontier of New Hampshire, including a number of towns that are now in Vermont. In 1803, the northern area was removed for the formation of Coos County.

The county seat is North Haverhill, which is a village within the Town of Haverhill. Until 1972, the county courthouse and other offices were located in downtown Woodsville (another village within the Town of Haverhill). The new courthouse is less than two miles from Woodsville.

Grafton county is the home of Dartmouth College and Plymouth State University. Grafton County is heavily rural. About half of its total area is in the White Mountain National Forest, the state's only National Forest. The Appalachian Trail passes through parts of at least ten towns in the county. It is a rural county and is the second largest county geographically, covering nearly one-fifth of the state
