I thought this event might be of interest to local genealogists.  I particularly like the “Brick Wall Busters” part of the program and may attend just to take advantage of that resource – happy research!

The 2017 Maine State Genealogy Fair (July 8 from 9:00am to 2:00pm) is FREE to all. Visit The Maine Genealogical Society and dozens of other exhibitors who want to help you research your Maine family history.  Whether you are a seasoned professional looking to learn more about the resources available across the State, or just thinking about starting to research your own family history and wondering how to get started, there’s something for everyone.  

Brick Wall Busters are back at the Genealogy Fair this year, better than ever.  Attendees will have a chance to meet one on one with a seasoned researcher for tips on finding that one elusive ancestor.  

The 2015 Genealogy Fair was attended by 300 people and a lot of great fun was had by all. We have taken our learnings from that event and are planning a bigger, and better event for 2017.  Please join us as we explore all Maine History and Genealogy has to offer in this free one day event.
