The goal of the Maine Families in 1790 series is to document all of the families living in Maine at the time of the 1790 census.

MGS: ME Families in 1790

The intent is to establish these families through accurate and well-documented summaries, providing a basis for further research. To date ten volumes have been published and these document nearly 2,500 families living in Maine in 1790. Not only has Maine Families in 1790 become one of the first sources to consult for Maine genealogical research, it has also allowed researchers to get in touch with the other persons working on the same families since the names of all submitters are published. Maine Families in 1790 is a project in which ALL Maine genealogists are encouraged are participate and share information.

Maine Genealogical Society is now accepting families for Volume 11. Submissions of families may be made in any format, but please include as much of the following information listed below as possible. 2. 3. ME State Library. Maine Registers of Deeds.
