The Maine Genealogical Society was founded in 1976 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 of the State of Maine. Within a few years, local chapters sprouted across the state. The official inauguration of the Greater Portland Chapter of MGS took place on April 21, 1979.
Like MGS, we are committed to promoting and fostering interest in genealogy and family history in the greater Portland area. Each month educational programs are presented to help further your research.
