To find information about Maine genealogical and historical societies with records and services that will help with your research, see Maine Archives and Libraries, Maine Church Records, and Maine Periodicals. Many counties also have local historical and genealogical societies. You can find local society addresses by using:
Lindberg, Marcia Wiswall. Genealogist's Handbook for New England Research. 3rd ed. Boston, Massachusetts: New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1993. (Family History Library book 974 D27g 1993.) This is an excellent guide to Maine towns and counties, location of public records, and genealogical societies.
