Vital Records of ThomastonOur Vital Records series includes data from early town records as transcribed from images of original documents. Births, Deaths, and Marriages are just some of the records that have been transcribed as part of this collection. Also included in some books are early church records, warnings out, cattle marks, town meeting information and disputes between neighbors.  There is a wealth of information in town vital records and we're extremely proud to be able to share this information with the masses.
As with the Maine Families series, Vital Records books are transcribed by volunteers willing to share their time and passion for Maine genealogical research with others.

About The Book: Etna is a small town in Penobscot County, situated 17 miles west of Bangor, Maine. Its records begin with 1807, when the town was first settled. The editors have very carefully extracted not only the births, deaths, intentions of marriages and marriages but also some ear marks and resolutions of fence line disputes. The records have been transcribed verbatim, retaining the original spelling and punctuation, making no corrections even where errors were apparent. As is customary with modern scholarship, the order of entries has also been retained as it is in the original records.
