Our ME genealogy research team consists of expert

 at the Maine Historical Society, Maine State Library, etc.), another group that works in the U.S. capital in Washington,
D.C. (at places like the U.S. National Archives and Library
of Congress
), and a third team of researchers that works
full time at the LDS Family History Library in Salt Lake
City, Utah.

The records collection of the Family History Library is
the single most important resource for family tree research
since it consists of literally billions of genealogy records from all parts of the globe, making it the largest and most
important collection of genealogical information available in the world. Included in the Family History Library's
collections are literally millions of genealogical records related to the state of ME which can be a great help to your
ancestry search. Click here to read about what our clients are saying about our genealogists and our unique family
tree research services.

Did you know that millions of genealogy records are NOT available on the Internet? 

Many people are unaware that many important records which are crucial to their family tree search cannot be
  found online. Many Somerset County records, for example, are only available to researchers who physically
 visit repositories at the local level in Maine, at the federal level in Washington, D.C., or at the LDS Family History
Library in Utah,  and are not readily available
 on the internet. Our genealogy researchers have
 access to all of these records and are ready to
 assist you with your genealogy search in
 Maine.  
 
  So, if you have limited your past research to exhaustive internet searches at Ancestry.com, Rootsweb, and other online databases  and web
 sites, you may have reached a brick wall because  you're missing out on the literal gold mine of
 records available  on microfilm, in books, and in
 other published works at libraries, archives, and
 other records repositories. Many genealogical
 records such as family wills, court records,
 obituaries, death certificates, military records, and land deeds are not available online and can only be obtained by
 mailing research requests to places like local public libraries or cemeteries, or by visiting the LDS Family History
Library in Utah.  These records are critical to
 any comprehensive ancestry search and should
 not be overlooked if high quality and thorough research results are to be achieved during your project. For these and other reasons, it's
 sometimes a great idea to hire a professional genealogist to assist you with your genealogy
 search.

 Because of the time and expense involved in
 doing your own research, it is often a great help
 to enlist the services of a professional genealogist
