Wiki Basics
Researchers -- General Guidelines

When making requests of volunteers:

  • Make requests specific -- avoid being too general.
  • Make requests ONLY for the volunteer's specified research areas. (Do not ask for out-of-area requests.)
  • Never ask more than one volunteer for the same request.
  • Ask the volunteer what reimbursements they require: copies, gas, parking, etc.
  • Negotiate an estimated completion time ... Remember: volunteers are not "on the clock," may research for multiple people, and respond reasonably as their time permits.

Note: If no volunteer exists for an area, Follow the page, for alerts of page changes.

Maine Volunteers

The Volunteer table below provides a list of Maine volunteers who will provide research assistance in the specified counties.

County Volunteer's Name Volunteer Services
ALL Art Suever CITY DIRECTORIES & FAMILY HISTORIES
  • Can help with family histories listed in the Allen Co. Public Library Genealogy Catalog (ACPL). If there is a listing for a book, provide me with a list of titles/call numbers, family surname(s), and what family information you're looking for. (Also check the availability of ACPL microtext records (microfilm and microfiche).)
  • The ACPL is the foremost repository for city directories. I can research hard cover city directories found in the ACPL Genealogy Catalog or microfiche and microfilm city directories found in the ACPL microtext catalog. (Please specify city, date range needed, and person(s) of interest.)

Note: I do not live in Maine ... I live in Allen Co., IN.

ALL Shelli Steedman I will check my marriage index 1892-1996 and death index 1960-1997. Not all counties are listed. I can also check censuses in any state.
ALL Hattie Will lookup many Maine vital records from CD (the cd's severely restrict copy paste). Inquire for town availability.
Cumberland Rootslilla Still photos of tombstones. Digital photos of grave sites or property of a genealogical nature. Will also add photos to Find a Grave web site. Contact me through my RAOGK Wiki user profile or my Find a Grave profile at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=mr&CRid=2285706&MRid=46830109&
Hancock Patti I will take photos of cemetery stones from Ellsworth to MDI including Trenton. I can do limited Hancock County deed searches. I will also look up obits or death notices for the Ellsworth - Mount Desert Island area for Hancock County folks. Please keep in mind that as we go further back in time obituaries were not often used. I would like to be reimbursed for copies and mailing. I prefer to email info I find - which means no cost. It is OK to ask for info outside of what I have listed. I will let you know if I can not do it. I will typically provide the info within 2 weeks - depending on the request it could take a little longer. I reserve the right to say no to a request.
Oxford Hattie Sumner, Hartford and Buckfield town reports and eatery reports. Large collection of published town histories, mostly Oxford county. Hand copied the earliest available Canton Vrs. They are not included in The Maine State records or the LDS ones. Other miscellaneous items collected by several generations of my family who lived in Hartford from 1780's to1950's.
