State Postal History

  What is Postal History?

Welcome to the State Postal History Registry. This site is intended to help you find answers to questions that you might have about philatelic postal history related to your state. Have you wondered to whom you can send information about a new postmark, or how to obtain information about documented postmarks? Perhaps you want to know if your state has a philatelic postal history society, and who to contact for further information about that society. Perhaps there is even a periodical or other literature available that can teach you more about postmarks from a specific state. Experts in philatelic postal history are offering their time and know-how through this registry.

Each state has a page of information dedicated to the philatelic postal history of that state. To learn more, click on the state's name below.
