We are very happy to have added volume 35 (2013) to the database of the genealogical journal The Maine Genealogist. This update adds over 220 pages and 5,100 searchable names to the database.There image above was inspired by the article beginning on page 165 of this volume: “Daniel Ridley of Harpswell and Bowdoin Maine”.

Published since 1977, The Maine Genealogist is the quarterly journal of Maine Genealogical Society, founded in 1976. Beginning as a newsletter for the society, the publication evolved into The Maine Seine, published until 1990. The title was changed to The Maine Genealogist in 1991, and each issue, now 48 pages, contains scholarly articles on Maine families, emphasizing the solving of long-standing problems and primary source documentation.

The indexing for these records includes full names, Publication year (not the year of the record), and article titles and authors.

This update is made possible by the efforts of our volunteer David Anderson. If you have some time and would like to get involved in the database digitization and indexing process please contact Rachel Adams, Database Services Volunteer Coordinator via email at
