I write a family blog and just posted something about Litchfield. If you have ancestors from that part of Maine, you might want to take a look.

In recent years FamilySearch has added two essential Maine Civil War resources to its website: the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors Card Index, 1861-1865, and a collection of images of enlistment and muster rolls for Maine regiments. The former has been indexed and may be searched here. The latter can only be browsed. By using the first resource as a finding aid for the second, one can locate and view images of…Continue

I am looking for the family of my 3rd great grandmother, Betsy Young Wilson. She was born around 1800, married Edmund Wilson as his 3rd wife in 1819 in Boothbay, bore 7 children, and died around 1840. One source states she is from Newcastle, another from Bristol. These sources also state that her sister Mary married her oldest stepson, Ira Wilson. I found some Youngs who were in Bristol around that time, several brothers who might be her father, but have only seen children…Continue

Hi everyone! I've been doing my genealogy for many years and have heard rumors that there's Native American in my family. I have searched and searched but found nothing at all. My grandmother was Susie Emma (Tibbetts) Fitts and she honestly looked full blooded Native American, but I have no idea which side it could have been on, if it was on the Tibbetts or her mothers side (she was Etta Kelley Seavey) I've traced both/all lines back to England and I can't find any names that remotely sound…Continue

That Blaisdell Blood: A Novel, is a book that morphs the facts of the Blaisdell family’s journey to America in 1635 into the near future where the first woman President, a scion of the Blaisdell clan, recalls her family’s past.
The idea for this book came in 2009 when I wrote an article for the Mensa Bulletin entitled, “The Journey of the Blaisdells.” This was a nonfiction exploration of the oral history carried down through generations by my mother’s…Continue

.........A Genealogical and Geometric study 165 pgs, vbe bind (lays flat)
The material is intended to represent a genealogical account of the early settlers, who resided as head of household within the current town boundaries of Freeport, prior to founding plus 1 year (which gives the convenient data base of the first Census—the year 1790). Obviously, these people lived beyond 1790 and this research attempts to follow them to the end…Continue

I will add a note about the Niskanens. I saw this online, but no one has added since 2013, so I am not sure this will be seen.
I am related to quite a few Niskanens through Julia Kuula Stein, who came to Maine in the early 1900's. Julia moved to New Hampshire after marrying my grandfather, John Elmer Stein. Her mother was Gustava Niskanen Kuula, who moved to Fithcburg, Mass around that time.
Brother of Gustava Niskanen is Johan Niskanen. Distant couisns are Matts Niskanen ,…Continue
