The Deputy Town Clerk has clarified the information
Towns covered: Our office has geneology records for Lebanon and West Lebanon, also for East Lebanon as Mascoma area was called.
Births, Adoptions, Marriages, and
Deaths: Our earliest records of births, deaths, and marriages are in
the mid 1700's. However, there are not many records
between 1800 and 1860. We have adoption records from the late 1960's.
These are confidential records and cannot be
openned without a court order. We also have cemetery records some in
Naturalization: To our knowledge
the nearest office of Naturalization is in Boston, Ma. There use to be
an office in St. Albans, Vt., but I
do not know if it is still there.
Taxes: Three years ago we had a
flood at City Hall and the Tax Dept lost a number of records. An
inventory is being worked on at the present time.
Land Records and Wills: The
Assessing Dept. of the City has some land transfer records. Most of the
records start in 1980, but they do have some in the 1970's.
All land transfer records and probate wills are recorded at the Grafton County Courthouse in North Haverhill, N.H.
