This section will serve as an archive of information and source of links for individuals who are interested in Fur Trade/Indian Trade and Trapping History. The subject matter shall be divided into sections.
The First Section entitled Early Fur Trade and Trapping in New Hampshire shall deal with our earliest historical information from the first contact of Europeans and Native Americans and their interaction relative to trading for fur with a focus on the area we now call New Hampshire. This section will bring us from 1500 to the present era.
The Second Section will deal with similar subject matter but include all of North America and cover the expansion from coast to coast which was preceeded and stimulated by the Fur Trade/Indian Trade. This section will be entitled North American Fur Trade History and will have the information which includes the Rocky Mountain era, Canadian Fur Trade History, and much more. Because of the massive extent of this area of subject matter this page will be less extensive and detailed than the other pages although significant amounts of information will be found here.
The Third Section will house all the historically significant information that can be found about the New Hampshire Trappers Association, and will be entitled History of NH Trappers Association. It is anticipated that some of you who view these pages may have historically relevent information, pictures, or other documents that would enhanse these pages. History about past Presidents, Fur Buyers, Equipment Suppliers, and Locally well known Trapping Characters will find a home here. Old newspaper articles dealing with trapping or furbearer issues may be what is most wanted to make this source all that it can be. When you find yourself at this site and realize you may have some of the information we seek, please go to the Contact NHTA button and let us know so we may figure out how best you may share what you have on these pages.
