After my individual consultation with Timothy B. I looked thru the catalog but could not find the record I need. I believe t he birth record for Oliver Foster born 22 Jun 1779 in Concord, New Hampshire to Asa Foster (Jr) and Mary Farnum, is in the Concord, New Hampshire book, Early Years. Another book including those years did NOT have a record. A gentleman on My Heritage stated that he found this birth record in the Concord, New Hampshire books. I already search the FHL catalog but cannot have access to Concord, New Hampshire, Early Years due to copyright laws. Why? Can someone look that up for me? I am a total loss. Six other cousins as well as myself are descended from Oliver Foster and we would like the record to prove lineage back to Oliver's father, Asa Foster, Jr., an American Revolutionary War veteran. Can you help me?

Sister Johnson,
Hopefully this will give some light on your New Hampshire families.
I put the information into the google search and found the following:
