Arrest Warrants for Ancestors, A Genealogical Find

This week, I scanned and uploaded images from five vintage arrest warrants into the Criminal Mugshots and Wanted Posters collection. Dates on these warrants range from 1816 to 1820, and they are all from Rockingham County, New Hampshire. Here are the names (with links to the records online):

An annual subscription is required for full access to these records and the corresponding images. As with all handwritten documents, there is a greater margin for error on the interpretation of names.

I love these kinds of documents; they give a snapshot into the lives of our ancestors and the challenges they faced (or fled from). You can expect to see additional arrest warrants added to the collection in the near future.
