Are you facing a brick wall? Can’t find that elusive ancestor? Here is an opportunity to break through that brick wall by asking for information from the ACGS and our online community. Questions will be held for moderation to ensure that the instructions below have been followed. Questions that do NOT adhere to the instructions will be discarded without response, so please take the time to read and follow the instructions. The better the question, the better – and better chance of receiving – the answer.

Please be aware that ACGS members answer these questions on their own time as a courtesy. If a question requires more than a hour’s research to provide an adequate answer, we will gladly do the research, but there will be a fee of $20.00 an hour. We will let you know if this is the case so you can decide if you wish to have us research. Any of our subscribers who might be able to answer any question asked here is free to provide an answer, but these answers are provided as is.


All questions MUST provide the following information:

  • Surname
  • Time frame (decade of some life event)

Questions SHOULD also provide the following additional information:

  • Alternative spellings of surname
  • Given name
  • As much vital information as you might have
  • The location in Aroostook County where your ancestor may have resided

(Note: Lack of optional information will not cause rejection.)
