The Provincial and State Papers of New Hampshire - 40 Volumes

 


 

INTRODUCTION
This project purports to be a consolidation of all indexes in the forty volumes of The Provincial and State Papers of New Hampshire. Published between 1867 and 1943, those volumes were edited by Nathaniel Bouton, Isaac W. Hammond, Albert Stillman Batchellor, Henry Harrison Metcalf, and Otis Grant Hammond. They are an invaluable source of New Hampshire history and have in recent years been made available worldwide on microfilm and on CD-ROM. The project has utilized the indexes as printed at the end of each volume, with the exception of volume IX as noted below. A longer-range goal is enhancement into a more detailed subject index to reduce the number of simple strings of page numbers.


The compiler encountered the fact that volume IX is indexed according to last name only. It is the only volume so indexed. To bring volume IX into compliance with the other thirty nine volumes, several people have worked with the compiler in ferreting out first names to put with the surnames. For this help the compiler is forever indebted to Brian Nelson Burford, Marilyn Christie, Robert Christie, John F. Page, Mica Stark, and Douglas Gourley.


The project utilizes a simple wraparound plan of volume and page listing behind each entry. In cases where subject and surname are the same, the subject is generally listed first [thus, “Rindge, NH” precedes “Rindge” as a surname]. The volumes consist of roughly 33,000 printed pages and an untold number of index entries. In a project of this magnitude errors are bound to occur, for which the compiler accepts responsibility. If an entry looks odd, the user is encouraged to check it against the original index at the end of each volume.


The project has been a dream of the compiler for nearly thirty years since first consulting these volumes in 1974 as editor of The Papers of Josiah Bartlett for the New Hampshire American Revolutionary Bicentennial Commission and the New Hampshire Historical Society. The project was actually begun on October 27, 1996, and completed, essentially, on February 25, 2004.

 
The general support and encouragement of many colleagues, friends, and family have provided the energy and time to complete this project.
