New Hampshire was not a significant port of immigration, even though thirty-two of its miles are on the Atlantic coast. In addition to a sizable French-Canadian and Atlantic-Canadian migration from the north, many of Massachusetts’ immigrants found their way to New Hampshire for work in manufacturing in the late nineteenth century. The collections of the American-Canadian Genealogical Society Library, New Hampshire Historical Society, and New Hampshire State Library are excellent sources for research.
