This site was set-up to help people doing genealogy research in "the County ". I have researched and documented 42 cemeteries in the area. I always work on cemeteries that I can find no information on. To contact me for any purchase use my email address: email@example.com.
Any questions on the books or the site you may contact me using Contact Me below or send me an email.
All the cemetery books include pictures of the cemeteries stones that have numbers, and most include a history of the occupants, some even include obituaries. If the obituaries outnumbered the pages in the book they became seperate books. All books have plot maps and a full index for easy stone location. Each cemetery book has been copy-righted and a copy is in the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.
The title bar at top contains town names, all cemeteries for each town are listed on their dedicated town page. The more arrow contains other towns, a page for ACGS (Aroostook County Genealogical Society) books, census and newspaper books and misc books.
Aroostook Republican - ACGS was given a collection of 30 years of old newspapers "The Aroostook Republican", "The Presque Isle Star Herald", "The Fort Fairfield Review" and "The St. John Valley Times". All obituaries were taken out and notebooks were created containing these obituaries and are stored in the Caribou Library's dedicated ACGS room. I have scanned the original notebooks to give a larger number of people who might not be able to do their research in Caribou, ME, the option of browsing them at home.
Fort Fairfield Review - The newest collection is being created from earlier "Fort Fairfield Reviews". These books contain, births, marriages, deaths, articles of interest and obituaries for years 1902 to 1939. These images were created in 2006 with a digital Camera from original papers and dropped to disc's to be typed but upon finding the original disc I took the images and formed them into books which show the original paper clipping much better, so the original typed have been transformed except year 1902 . This was left typed because of the information it contained. I have added two new books, both with obituaries for the Fort Fairfield Riverside Cemetery, one first contains years 1903 to 1929 all obituaries, the 2nd obituary book is from 1930 to 1940 and the third has been sort of finished for now, it contains obituaries found not in the two others and doesn't contain whole years, it contains obits from 1902 up to 2001. I have the disc's from 1940 up to up to 1952 so that may be added as another book. All books have full indexes. To purchase any book contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
These books contain Vital records taken from old Town Reports which were published yearly for some towns. The reports listed all town information and all births, marriages and deaths that occurred in the town the year the report was completed. People living in the towns between 1900 and 1945 had access to the yearly reports, then they were discontinued. Luckily some towns kept them in storage either at a library or in their town hall.
These old reports have become a great source of early vital records information and now we all have access.
When I first started writing books, they were all typed in Word, from pictures of the articles I had taken of old newspapers. I collected the pictures while doing research on my own family,
When the first book was completed I entered the book into a contest sponsored by the Connecticut Genealogy Society. Surprise, I won first prize for my book "The Loyal Sunrise" 1863-1865, 1877 "The Fort Fairfield Aurora" 1875 - 1876 "the Presque Isle Sunrise" 1876 - 1877. At their Awards banquet, along with a very nice plaque I was given, a check, which I used to purchase the program I still use today to create cemetery books, and different types of genealogy books.
