October 2015 Edition of the Maine State Library Genealogy Newsletter

The October 2015 edition of the Maine State Library genealogy newsletter, Genealogy Notes from Emily is available online.

The newsletter is published several times a year by Maine State Library reference librarian and genealogy expert, Emily Schroeder. The October edition highlights new titles of interest in the Maine State Library Genealogy Collection.

The Maine State Library is home to the largest genealogy collection in the state as well as town histories and published vital records for towns in Maine and a good deal of New England, materials on the Maritime Provinces of Canada, and genealogy reference materials.

In 2013, Schroeder launched a Genealogy Club at the Maine State Library. The group meets monthly with the goal of promoting interest in genealogy, celebrating ancestral history and sharing best practice strategies for family research. New members are always welcome.
