Volume 12 of the Maine Families in 1790 series is the biggest yet. Crammed with 848 genealogy-packed pages, this volume treats 200 new families located throughout the District of Maine. Consistent with the previous volumes, all of the families have been thoroughly researched and edited, and all facts are meticulously documented with clear source citations. Conclusions drawn from circumstantial evidence, incomplete records, or conflicting sources are fully discussed within each family sketch.

Our Conferences

Maine Genealogical Society has steadily gained a reputation for the quality of its annual Fall Conference, striving to bring national speakers to the state.

We’ve also developed a Spring Workshop dedicated to exploring one topic in more depth than a conference permits.

Next: We hope to be back to live events in 2021… Stay Tuned.
