New Hampshire Launches an Online Database for More Than 16,000 Historical Records

New Hampshire State officials launched an online database Tuesday that gives users access to more than 16,000 historical documents. It’s called the Enhanced Mapping and Management Information tool — or EMMIT for short. Envisioned about 20 years ago, the system provides instant access to records.

After logging in to the new web site, hundreds of dots populate an on-screen aerial map, and with a click each one could lead to photos, property records and more.

Elizabeth Muzzey, director of the Division of Historical Resources, says, she hopes the system will prove invaluable for environmental researchers, engineering firms and history buffs alike..

However, access is expensive: $60-a-month or $400 for a yearly subscription.

When you go to link that says “Learn More” it is revealed the limits of what they have available:
National Register of Historic Places nomination forms, photos and maps
NH State Register of Historic Places inventory forms, photos and maps
Individual Inventory Survey forms, photos and maps
Project Area forms, photos and maps
Historic District forms, photos and maps
Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) documentation
Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) documentation
NH Historic Property Documentation
Archaeological site forms (restricted access)
Archaeological survey reports (restricted access, survey locations are not available within the GIS map)
Not many of these are directly valuable to genealogy, but could be valuable for a variety of other researchers.
