Edmund Littlefield was a Great Migration immigrant from Titchfield, Hampshire, England. He came to America, probably in 1635, and by 1641 he was living in Wells, Maine, as one of the first settlers of that location. From his eight surviving children and at least fifty-seven grandchildren, he founded one of Maine’s most prolific families. It is the rare York County family today that does not have Littlefields in its background. 

2020 Fall Conference Update

 

Due to continuing COVID-19 uncertainty, The Maine Genealogical Society has made the decision to CANCEL the Fall 2020 Conference.

We look forward to seeing all our MGS friends and family again in 2021.

 

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.

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.

Statewide Chapters

We are pleased to be associated with eleven chapters located around the state. These chapters meet frequently and provide a more localized focus on area resources.
