The goal of the Maine Families in 1790 series is to document all of the families living in Maine at the time of the 1790 census. The intent is to establish these families through accurate and well-documented summaries, providing a basis for further research.
To date, twelve volumes have been published and these document nearly 3,100 families living in Maine in 1790. Not only has Maine Families in 1790 become one of the first sources to consult for Maine genealogical research, it has also allowed researchers to get in touch with the other persons working on the same families since the names of all submitters are published. Maine Families in 1790 is a project in which ALL Maine genealogists are encouraged are participate and share information.

We have compiled an index of the Heads of Household for sketches included in Maine Families in 1790, volumes 1-12.
Many of our 1790 volumes have an addendum at the end with known corrections or additions, often overlooked. We have created an Addendum Index to help easily locate these updated/enhanced sketches. Please take a moment to ensure you aren’t missing some new information on your family.
