Archives and Records Management

  • NH Archives-building front
  • NOTICE: 

    The Research Room for Vital Records and Archives will be closed during election recounts beginning Wednesday, November 16, 2016 for the duration of recounts, which may continue as late as Wednesday, November 30, 2016.

    Researchers are asked to call either Vital Records at 603-271-4650 or the State Archives at 603-271-2236 to inquire about the availability of records during the recount period.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

  • The Division of Archives & Records Management has two principal functions.  One function is to assist state agencies with the efficient and proper management of their records, and in conjunction with that service, provide storage space for their less active records.  Our second function is to preserve documentation of the history of New Hampshire state government institutions, and work to make them available to the public in as efficient a manner as possible.
