 Maine

(Massachusetts District: 1788.  Statehood: 1820)

Maine has some of the best and oldest vital statistic records of all the United States.  Towns in Maine started keeping records of births, deaths and marriages very early.  Despite the fact that Maine was in the jurisdiction of Massachusetts for so long, many of the early records have remained undisturbed and are intact.  Most of them have been been transcribed and printed for use by genealogists.
