Greater Portland Chapter
Maine Genealogical Society
The purpose of this chapter is to collect, exchange, preserve and publish genealogical records, related documents and information, and to promote and encourage interest and scholarship in genealogy and family history in the greater Portland area.
Who we are
We are a friendly group of people who meet via Zoom (during COVID) every month (Sept. - June, but not December) on the first Saturday of the month at 1:00. Starting sometime in 2022, we are hoping to be meeting in person again at the First Congregational Church UCC at 301 Cottage Road in South Portland. We'll keep you posted! Meetings are free and open to the public. Please join us for our next meeting!
