Hello Laura.

T.%20Bryant.pdf

Hey there!  I just saw a post to you from Skip Bryant about your search for info on Thomas Bryant and 'Salome'. This rattled my cage and I realized that with my new scanner/printer I could scan a page from the Bryant Genealogy that you need. It turned out to be page 70....I think. The above attachment is it. If you right click on the link, a drop down…

Verrill

I am a descendent of the Verrill's of Patch Mountain.  I am trying to piece together their geneology.  My grandmother was Ruby Verrill Rogers and she passed away in August 1934 when my mother and her twin were born.  One twin lived with the uncle and grandfather, George and Charles while the other (my Mom) went to live with an unrelated person (Celia Davis) in Lovell.

Would love any information on the Verrills.

Finding Maine County Marriage Returns

In Maine we don't usually go to the county courthouse to find vital records.

Municipal clerks in Maine were sometimes expected to return copies of these records to the state, but only in 1892 did this become standard practice. There is, though, one important set of vital records that may be found at Maine courthouses.…

The Legend of Isaac Patch's Gold

This is the sixth in a series of posts I am writing in celebration of the bicentennial of my hometown of Greenwood in Oxford County, incorporated February 2, 1816.
