of MDI history, and schools, agriculture and business in the 19th century, with
old photos of Tremont, especially Bernard and Bass Harbor. This project is a work
in progress. Please come and share anything you know about Tremont's history.
More Gravestone Photos Added
It's been a while since I've updated a large number of stones on the site, but yesterday a friend of mine reminded me I have 2 CDs of Farmingdale's Maine Ave. Cemetery that need to be uploaded to the site. They were sent to me years ago but lost in my paper clutter (for more information about getting rid of your genealogy paper clutter, join me on http://paperlessgenealogy.blogspot.com) So yesterday I was able to upload 50 new names to the database along with photos of their head stones. I'm only about 1/3 of the way through the first CD, so there should be a lot more coming in the next few days.
Community Archives Room
The Community Archives Room is located at the Gardiner Public Library. This past year we taught two Genealogy classes each lasting 5 weeks and 6 weeks. This is free. We will be doing so again very soon. CAR offeres a wide range of information for all kinds of researchers. From local history to state history, all the different wars, and plenty of genealogical information through vital records and newspapers. These cover Gardiner and surrounding towns. We also have acquired a nice archival collection which is listed in minerva through the library system.
