MEREDITH — Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB) was recently recognized by New Hampshire Housing and Finance Authority (NHHFA) as Top Correspondent Lender in 2013. The bank received the distinction at NHHFA's "Best of 2013" ceremony, during which top real estate offices, loan originators, and lenders were recognized for their dedication to helping homebuyers find affordable homes and loans.
Working with participating lenders, like MVSB, New Hampshire Housing offers a variety of mortgage and cash assistance programs to eligible New Hampshire residents in an effort to make homeownership more affordable. MVSB was awarded the Top Correspondent Lender award for achieving both the highest number of loans and the top dollar volume of loans through NHHFA in 2013.
"The steps to owning a home can be daunting and the goal of homeownership often appears out of reach for New Hampshire residents," said Brenda Mahoney, Director of Business Development – Homeownership for New Hampshire Housing. "We rely on community lenders, like Meredith Village Savings Bank, to help connect prospective homeowners with the right programs and resources to help them achieve their homeownership goals."
New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority is a self-supporting public benefit corporation. The authority operates a number of rental and homeownership programs designed to assist low- and moderate-income persons with obtaining affordable housing. Since its inception, New Hampshire Housing has helped over 40,000 families purchase their own homes and has been instrumental in financing the creation of more than 14,500 multi-family housing units. More information about its programs can be found on the agency's websites at www.nhhfa.org and www.GoNewHampshireHousing.com.
Meredith Village Savings Bank, founded in 1869, is an independent mutual savings bank with 11 offices serving individuals, families, businesses and municipalities in the Lakes Region and the Plymouth area.

WOLFEBORO — The Wolfeboro Public Library, in conjunction with The Lakes Region Genealogical Interest Group, will present a program on genealogical research techniques that can be done from home on Thursday, May 8, at 7 p.m. The program will include a webinar presentation by Tammy Hepps from RootsTech 2014 called "Top 10 Things I Learned about My Family from My Couch." The program is free and open to all.
Hepps, a graduate of Harvard who lives in the New York City Area, has a degree in Computer Science. In her presentation, she describes how she started out working on each of ten research problems, the resources she found from her couch online, and then the offline research she performed in order to find more information about her family. In the process, she demonstrates all of the basic genealogy techniques used by most experienced researchers, and is funny and instructive. Her ancestry and research is of recent immigrants from Eastern Europe into northeastern states during the late 19th century. Hepps also offers many solid ideas for dealing with research brick walls.
The Lakes Region Genealogy Interest Group presents free workshops at the Wolfeboro Public Library on a monthly basis. For more information call Cindy Scott at the Wolfeboro Public Library at 569-2428 or visit www.wolfeborolibrary.org.
