I'm trying to find adoption papers for Abby R. Burgess of Monroe, Maine. She is listed in the 1900 Census as the adotped daughter of William K and Jennie Burgess. I bellieve her biological parents are William and Mary Smith of Brownville, Maine, relatives of mine. Both biological parents died and left five children.
How does one go about finding Maine adoption papers for 1900?

Looking for any information on the Morang family - Gardner/Randolph Maine area. My father was Charles P. Morang and my Grandfather was John K. Morang. My Grandmother was Grace T. (Suitter) Morang.
I was recently at a antique mall in Washington, Va and I purchased the framed Marriage Certificate for Frederick A. Baker and Margaret McCann dated August 28, 1918. It includes a photo of the bride and groom. I'm just wondering if anyone is researching this family and might have an interest in this Marriage Certificate. …Continue

I am unsure any of ancestors fought in the Civil War. Which seems strange, since many of my ancestors resided in the United States during the war. I have uncovered evidence that two of my relatives took part in the Civil War Battle of Portland, Maine which I blogged about in a previous post. I don't believe either of those relatives were active…Continue

Looking for some generous person who either lives in or around Swanville, Maine who would be willing to visit a private cemetery and document the graves for me. It lies on an old piece of property that my 4th great grandfather used to own. Message me if you are interested, thanks!

I have been doing family geneology for Dunham and Wilbur- all in the Rangeley area but today my interest is different.
A house is being purchased in Danville and it was built in 1789 and I would love to know, if possible who built the home and who were the prior owners. The last owner was Dr. Paul and Barbara Beegel.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you, Lori
My Grandfather Henry J Hughey born in Canada 1870 married in Maine (Moose River) to Bernice ( maiden name Orr) had 5 boys including my Father Thomas Theodore Hughey + 3 girls.
Three family members worked as Guides and were involved with a Sporting Camp in the Moose River area.
I believe my Great Grandfather left Northern Ireland arriving in Canada and then on to Maine.
I cannot continue my search without his full name - any ideas /help would be appreciated.....thank you…Continue

Chris, Do you have any source, family lore or other, that your ancestor, Lemuel Dunham, Jr., may have been involved in a RR accident, 1 Aug 1871? This occurred when an unscheduled train traveling north just above Bryant's Pond struck a RR workers' handcart with 5 men on it. David Robbins was killed and Gaius (or Gains) Swan was badly injured. I'm trying to find out who the other 3 men were. I've just found a hint in Libby that two of them may have been William Day and Lemuel Dunham. Do…Continue

On a recent trip to Buckfield, ME, I was able to photograph all of their vital records at their municipal building. Records are from ~1790-1947. These are the same records available on FamilySearch, but those images are terrible. If interested in a copy, let me know.
While I am a new member of the Maine Genealogy Network, I have been researching my Morrison family in Maine for over twenty years. Early on I realized what a valuable resource old Maine newspapers were. Living in adjacent NH I was fortunate to be able to travel to the Maine Archives and Maine libraries to review microfilms. While that was productive, I began to find it was also limited. So, I thought, why not begin to acquire the actual newspapers myself? That began a personal search…Continue
