Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data for the free use of all researchers.

We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this project be as successful as it can be. If you are interested in joining Genealogy Trails, view our Volunteer Page for further information.
(Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)

Thank you for visiting our Washington County Maine  site.  We regret that we are unable to do personal research.  We hope that you found information to further your genealogy research.

We welcome your feedback and comments, and of course, your data contributions. If you have data that you would like to have posted on this website, please contact me   and please check back for updates.

If you would like to be kept informed of our state and county website updates, subscribe to any or all of our mailing lists
Maine is covered under our "Northeastern Coastal States" mailing list.

Washington County
Founded 1790
County Seat: Machias

Sometimes referred to as "Sunrise Country" because it is the easternmost county of the United States, and it is often where the rising sun first reaches U.S. soil. Many small seaside communities have small-scale fishing-based economies. Tourism is also important along the county's shoreline, but though it is not as important as elsewhere in the state. The blueberry crop plays a major role in the county's economy; nearly 85% of the world's supply of blueberries come from Washington County.
