About the Book
Anyone who has conducted research in the Lincoln County, Maine, deeds is familiar with the problem. The indexes are poorly arranged and exceedingly difficult to use.
 
Each deed volume has its own index, with the entries grouped by the first letter of the surname. While all of the A-surname entries are grouped together—as are all of the B-surnames, etc.—the names are listed in page order, not alphabetically. Finding the deeds for any person therefore requires searching through all of the indexes under the first letter of the surname. For someone who was party to many deeds over a long period, a researcher might need to search through hundreds of pages of index entries to find all of the deeds.
 
This new resource from MGS solves this problem, offering a properly  alphabetized name index for the first 100 volumes of Lincoln Co. deeds. Combining all of the names into one alphabetized list (and specifying whether grantee or grantor and the type of instrument), this index contains 88,000 entries, sorted by surname, then given name, then volume & page, making it a simple matter to find all of the deeds (available online at familysearch.org) for any individual.
