    Hi Richard,
    The name change might make your search more difficult, and perhaps more interesting, as well. If you would like to pursue your genealogy research then I recommend that you call or come in to visit the N.H. Room here at the library. We have a trained genealogist on staff who should be able to steer you in the right direction. Here is the link to write in to the N.H. Room to ask your genealogy question:
    You can also call us at 603-624-6550 and use extension #306 to contact the N.H. Room. Good luck in your research
