Hancock County
Genealogy and History


Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy



This county is available for adoption.


We're looking for folks who share our desire to put data online and are interested in helping this project be as successful as we can make it. If you are interested joining our group as County Host for this website, or any of our websites, view our Volunteer Information page. A desire to transcribe data and know-how to make a basic webpage is required.

In the meantime, we'd be very happy to accept any data you'd care to contribute and would like to see displayed on this site. We're looking for "raw data" - the birth/death/marriage records, obituaries, cemetery headstone readings, biographies, county histories, census data, pensions and other military data. In short, we'd like to display all the items you used to put together your family tree (rather than the tree itself).

Email your transcribed data to Christine Walters and I'll take care of putting it online.

WE REGRET THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO DO PERSONAL RESEARCH FOR YOU.
All data we come across will be added to this website, so please keep checking back.



Hancock County was founded in 1844. It was named in honor of John Hancock who served as a member of the Continental Congress from Massachusetts from 1775-1780. He presided over the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, and was the first to sign it. He was Governor of Massachusetts 1780-1785 and again from 1787 until his death in 1793.
