HARPSWELL Families Genealogies List of Works at
Maine State Library by
Rev. Charles N SINNETT 1847-1929. The Rev Charles N SINNETT compiled many genealogical studies on families of his home town in Maine from the his residence in the mid-west. Take care when using his information as most of this information was compiled by mail but his works should not be over looked for clues.
They are a real must see if one is researching Cumberland County families. Only a small part of his compilation has been published & his collections can be found at the Maine State Library, Maine Historical Society in Portland, Maine, & the New York City Library.
Virginia T Merrill of Solon, ME has retyped some of his works, indexing them & gave a copy to the Maine State Library.

    RETURN TO Maine GenWeb Archives


    RETURN TO Maine USGenWeb Project:


    The USGenWeb Archive was developed to present actual transcriptions of public domain records on the Internet. This huge undertaking is the cooperative effort of volunteers who either have electronically formatted files on census records, marriage bonds, wills, and other public documents, or are willing to transcribe this information to contribute.

    Once the decision was made to develop a project, originally called "TimeToDo" Something, a call went out to volunteers who would be willing to transcribe primary records as a "service to the community", find a way to get them posted on the Internet, and allow the USGenWeb county hosts to make them available to the Internet community by links to the ftp datasets. Space was donated by RootsWeb for storage of the files.

    The table above is broken down by county. The left column represents the location of a table of contents for each state, with a brief description of each file and a direct link to it.The right column is the actual location of the archived files.

    The USGenWeb Archive was implemented in July 1996, and files are being added everyday as more people become aware of this site. If you have anything to contribute, please contact the person listed on the state table of contents page. Please read the Guidelines for file contributions.

    Contribution can be sent to: Carol LaRue or
