New Web Site for Querying Vital Records Statistical Data
Genealogical & Vital Records are not available online.
This is statistical information only. Individual vital records dataCANNOT be accessed using this tool.
The Division of Vital Records Administration has released new, web-based software that anyone can use to look at Vital Records statistical information ONLY (derived from records of birth, death, marriage and divorce). The "New Hampshire Vital Records Information Network web" (NHVRINweb), is a real-time web-based data query system for accessing Vital Records statistical data. This web-based tool allows access to de-identified Vital Records that date back to 1995. You can also produce data reports in either a spreadsheet format or as a document, so that you can include this data in your own reports if desired.
Here is a link to our new software tool: http://nhvrinweb.sos.nh.gov/. Once you get into the site, you will be prompted to register yourself in order to look at the data in the birth, death, marriage and divorce tables. The site also has the ability for you to provide feedback if you have any questions or comments. Enjoy! Please Note: this is statistical information only. Individual vital records data cannot be accessed using this tool.
