This new resource from MGS is an index of the grantor and grantee names in the first 100 volumes of Lincoln Co. deeds and replaces the user‐unfriendly indexes at the County Courthouse. Containing more than 88,000 entries, the index identifies grantees, grantors and the type of instrument, and is sorted by surname, then given name, then volume & page. With the deeds themselves now available on familysearch.org, this index will make it a simple matter to find all of the deeds for any individual.
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.
