Census Search 1840 Hopkinton, Merrimack, New Hampshire

Hopkinton Census was in the county of Hillsborough, New Hampshire until the 1830 census when it became part of the newly formed Merrimack County, New Hampshire. If you are having trouble with census searches check the town under a different county or even under a different name. If you go to the web site Where in the State is Mom, you will find all the towns and cities in New Hampshire with a brief history of the various names and counties they are in. http://home.comcast.net/~mikebutka5a/site/?/home/&PHPSESSID=0569a1a7da3f203d621dfa4c293f9cd4

I have been working on finding verification of my Chase ancestors this past month. The purpose of my blog is to show you my process of research. I decided to post the search results as I do them. I will make the best effort to include the source and the surnames I have found on each census.

Today’s census search was done in Hopkinton, Merrimack, New Hampshire for the year 1840. The surnames Chase and Fletcher were noted. My source was the Heritage Quest online Census site. I logged in via my local library from my home computer. If you visit your local library they will tell you what sites you can log into from your home computer. This saves you the cost of paying for these research sites. Sites such as Ancstry.com can only be logged into from the library computers without paying for them. 

Browsing the census means page by page review. I hope that my research will prevent you from having to do this.
