If I may, I suggest that you also join the MaineGenealogy group; they're another great group of friendly and helpful individuals.

Subject: [MaineFamilies] Hello Maine Families~ new guy
Just a hello,
I joined on several days back and have not seen any activity. Guess
you all talked yourselves out before I got here! :D
Well, I am still in that ambitious mode - gathering all I can,
organizing the data, drawing up a family tree, seeking leads on dead
ends, etc. - which is what brought me here~
One leg of my family leads back to the very early days of Maine
territory and I have been thrilled to see all the connections there!
Among the family names are:
Bartlett - Bittfield - Chase - Crosby - Currier - Griffin - Hale -
Hutchinson - Jewett - Merrill - Morse - Moulton - Noyes - Perkins -
Philbrick - Poor(e) - Pickard - Platt - Roberts - Sargent - Sawyer -
Shattswell - Weed - Wheeler - Winsley - Wood - Yoeman
Some of these names hale from the early 1600's Mass & NH but all lead
down to my GG Grandmother Sylvia Philbrick b. 1832/d. 1865, Jefferson
Maine. I have worked out a great deal on her family & ancestors but
scarcely a thing on her Husband - John J. (S) Sutherland - who
emigrated from Upper Canada in 1852. I am interested in extending and
sharing any of my current information on Sylvias ancestors and have
some great internet sites that have been tremendous help, but am
seeking a needle in the haystack on her husband.
As I settle in and get a feel for the group I will post some queries
for further info on my list, but for now..... Hello!
