Piscataqua River Basin (NH)





Mission Statement

This is an educational, genealogical, historical and patriotic society, whose membership consists of descendants of the original settlers on each side of the Piscataqua River and its tributaries, prior to the Declaration of Independence.

Objects of the Society

The objects for which this Society is established are primarily for securing and preserving the records of the pioneers of the Piscataqua area in Maine and New Hampshire and of their descendants in the following particulars:


* To be an historical society as well as a genealogical and biographical association.
* To propose, as an organization, regular visits to historical points of interest.
* To promote the acquaintance and good fellowship of its members generally in these matters.
* To learn the names of the earliest European settlers on both sides of the Piscataqua River within the limits of the Piscataqua Plan or Piscataqua Settlements and contiguous territory from the earliest times to July 1776.
* To learn the contributions of these settlers to the advancement of civilization including its industry, literature and arts.
* To trace the settlers and their descendants.
* To provide for the assembling and publication of such information as may be secured to the end that those generations who come after us shall not be ignorant of those who first dealt with the wilderness and who established homes in the New World.
* To cooperate with other organizations with similar interests so that we may be mutually helpful in these matters.
