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.
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 and Email Kim.
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 us and we'll take care of putting it online.
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.
