The Greater Portland Chapter of the Maine Genealogical Society wants everyone to know about the 2nd Annual Southern Maine Genealogical Conference which will be held on Saturday, May 30, 2015 at Keeley’s Banquet Center at 178 Warren Ave., Portland, Maine.

This year’s Keynote Speaker is Margaret Dube.  Her Keynote Address is: A Home Among Yankees: turn of the century immigrants along the Maine Coast. Join her as she delves into the lives of immigrants who, at the turn of the last century, settled in seacoast Maine. Learn the challenges involved in studying those who ventured far from home and forged a new life.  Margaret is a Certified Genealogist who lives in Kittery, ME.  Through her website, Common Folk Ancestry, she connects with people who are searching for information on their ancestors.
