State Host: Melody

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 and then contact Kim. (Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)

We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for folks. All data we come across will be added to this site.
We thank you for visiting and hope you'll come back again to view the updates we make to this site.

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

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.

If you would like to contribute data, please email data to Melody Beery or use the following links to submit obituary and cemetery data. Contributors are given credit for their submissions.
