Hampton, N.H. Genealogy Sources

Sources used in the Hampton Genealogy Database

Since most of the information in the database came initially from Dow's History of Hampton we did not bother to cite the source for this information. In this work, Dow lists each surname in alphabetical order with each family therein in approximate chronological order starting with the family's progenitor. As new sources of information are added, they will be cited. When no source is cited, this usually means it is from Dow. Source information can be found at the bottom of each individual's record, using the INDIVIDUAL format option provided by WorldConnect, with any biographical notes about the person. As a result of the way the database is organized on the web every individual has their own separate section with links connecting them to their relatives. If an individual has no source notes it may not be because the information was from Dow, but rather because the source information is under a family member's name. Always remember to check other close family members for source information. Many times a person is added to the database only because they are the parent or child of someone more fully treated.
