Library Collections

The Library has collections of how-to genealogical materials as well as some town and family histories. The how-to books, regional books, and some family histories are located together in the nonfiction collection (929). Additional family histories can be found in our Reference collection. There is a wealth of resources at the Stratham Historical Society. They are open Tuesdays 9:00am to 11:30am, Thursdays 2:00pm to 4:00pm, and the first Sunday of each month 2:00pm to 4:00pm. Email questions can be sent to them by clicking here.
