The Maine State Library offers presentations and many materials for patrons searching for their roots. One thing that will be available to us until Tuesday, Nov. 12 are the databases at americanancestors.org, the website of the New England Historical Genealogical Society, are open to anyone with a free guest account. The state library has a subscription for in-library use if you miss this, but here’s your chance to explore from home. Lots of New England records, with some others from eastern Canada and England thrown in for extra fun.
At our own library, we will be creating a place in the Barbara Porter room where we will provide helpful information on conducting searches. Our existing materials will be stored in one area. If you have done extensive research on your own and would like to provide the library with your research, we would love to add it to our collection. Also, when you are in the library, you have free access to Ancestry.com.
