ABOUT US / CONTACT
web site is a volunteer project by Janice (Webster) Brown.
I grew up on the south east side of Manchester, New Hampshire,
as did my mother and grandparents. My great-grandparents were
Irish immigrants who arrived in America in the mid-1800s, seeking
relief from Ireland's Great Famine. They were middle-class workers
who built the city as you see it now. They were boarding house
owners, mill workers, chauffeurs, firemen, to name a few of their
occupations. I hope that this web site reflects pride in both
my heritage and the lovely city where I grew up.
My special thanks to the staff of the Manchester City Library,
and specifically the New Hampshire Room there, who assisted me
with research starting some 37 years ago.
You may contact me through email using the webmaster link at the
bottom of this (and other) pages on this web site.
This is a primarily a FREE site of information, documents, photographs,
etc. researched and collected by the webmaster.
Links to information I consider to be of considerable value,
available by paid subscription, can occasionally be found

I apologize, but due to the great number of inquiries I receive,
I am not able to perform extensive research for you. If you have a specific question,
I will take the time to respond, and offer advice on where you might this research
on your own. If I learn that you are researching a family tree or historical topic
of which I have already compiled information, I will certainly share that with
you at the time of inquiry.
I recently received an email that read: "I was so very happy
to find your site. I lived in Manchester New Hampshire till I was
six. I now live in Orange County Ca. A lot of my family on my mother
and fathers side still live there. My only problem is it is so hard
to get pictures and dates from them,it's like they don't want to
give any information. How and what part of the site do I go to to
find pictures and dates? I
have no idea where to start."
Answer: The best place to start, is with yourself. A great web
site that gives advice to beginning
genealogists is at FamilySearch.
