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.


Strafford County was one of the five original counties identified for New Hampshire in 1769. It was named for William Wentworth, 2nd Earl of Strafford in the mistaken belief that he was the ancestor of governor John Wentworth. Although they were distantly related, William had no descendants.

The county was organized at Dover in 1771. In 1840 the original size of the county was reduced with the creation of Belknap County.
