New link for Genealogists & Historians
History in Stones: Check out this link for genealogists, historians, teachers and anyone who loves history, genealogy and cemeteries.
"History in Stones" is a project headed by Dr. Kim Sebold of the University of Maine at Presque Isle. This website provides valuable information for genealogists, teachers, historians and community members alike. You will find a searchable database of local cemeteries that includes GPS locations of headstones, family plots and individuals as well as photos & data of the people buried there. You can read story maps of people and events that shaped our local history. You can also find materials and lesson plans for teachers who teach local history.
We are always looking for volunteers who are interested in leading programs/groups, program/group helpers or helping out in the library. If you are interested in volunteering, you can pick up an application at the library.
