The Maine Genealogical Society (MGS) is a non-profit charitable and educational organization. It was founded in 1976 to collect, exchange, preserve, and publish genealogical records, related documents, and information; and to promote and encourage interest and scholarship in genealogy and family history of the State of Maine.
Maine Genealogical Society has steadily gained a reputation for the quality of its annual Fall Conference, striving to bring national speakers to the state for our members to hear.
In addition, we have developed a Spring Workshop format dedicated to exploring one topic in more depth than a conference permits.

Maine Genealogical Society is very proud of our highly-acclaimed publications. These include a combination of scholarly articles in our quarterly journal, to sketches of individuals living in Maine at the time of the first Federal census, to transcriptions of early town records.
