Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

Hello and welcome to the Genealogy Trails website for Maine. My name is Melody  and I'm proud to be your state coordinater.    This page contains links to State data and county data.  Maine has sixteen counties and there are links to each county which has data that pertains to that individual county.  All data contained within this site is free for you to use to build your family tree.  Please see the copyright information contained at the bottom of this page.

We welcome your feedback and comments, and of course, your data contributions. If you have data that you would like to have posted on this website, please contact me.

Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data for the free use of all researchers.

We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this project be as successful as it can be. If you are interested in joining Genealogy Trails, view our
Volunteer Page for further information and then contact Kim.
(Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)

We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for folks.
All data we come across will be added to this site. We thank you for visiting and hope you'll come back again to view the updates we make to this site.

If you would like to be kept informed of our state and county website updates, subscribe to any or all of our
mailing lists
