The newspapers abstracted for this work were published between 1797 and 1831 in the towns of Walpole, Gilmanton, Gilford and Exeter, NH. Each town is treated in a separate section of the book. The largest amount of information (comprising more than three-quarters of the book) comes from the Walpole paper, The Farmer’s Weekly Museum, published from 1797 until 1810. This paper was said to have the largest circulation of any village newspaper of its day, having readers from Maine to Georgia and into the western frontier. Large numbers of vital records from the Connecticut River Valley are the book’s main feature, detailing the genealogical links between river towns in New Hampshire-Vermont and their parent-towns to the south, along the river into Massachusetts and Connecticut. However, an enormous amount of information also pertains to other areas of New England, and includes abstracts from extremely rare issues of newspapers from other parts of the state.
