State of New Hampshire May Create a Database of Cemeteries

There are thousands of historic cemeteries and burial grounds all over the state of New Hampshire, and a state lawmaker wants to make it easier to keep track of them.

Senator David Watters of Dover says a central, online database would not only preserve this history, but could help developers or other community members who are planning construction projects.

Details may be found in an article by Lauren Chooljian in the New Hampshire Public Radio web site at: http://nhpr.org/post/bill-would-create-database-nh-cemeteries.

Sometimes smaller computer repair or shops that sell computers will be able to transfer info from older disks, etc. to a new format, for a small fee.

    I am from NH now living in Va–My husbands family was born and raised in North Conway area–we are related to the “Willey family of the Willey Slide up in the Notch on Rt 302–when we were looking for info we finally found the cemetery with that family in it-behind a restaurant- It is on Rt 16 in Intervale/Conway,NH. It has the family members listed–and there was one little girl that they either couldn’t find or she was buried in the mud slide–there is a book written regarding this girl called “Soltaire ” by George Franklin Willey The story is that the girl did make it .brought up by a hermit and when she was older was taken down to the town of Bartlett,NH and worked at the Bartlett Inn
