President's Message

Brief on-point messages from the president.


President’s Message, May/June 2015

At this time the Aroostook County Civil War Veterans database is just about completed. What a major under-taking it has been!

Doing varying amounts of research on soldiers were: Allen, Ann, Barbara, Dennis, Frances, Linda, Orlan, Spike and myself.

Linda has spearheaded this work, doing all the typing, doing a lot of the research and assembling it in book form for me to proof read.

This has involved thousands of hours as there are so many who give an Aroostook town as an address and they are only found downstate or in Canada. Trying to find and prove ended being a monumental task.

Thank you everyone.

Anyone who plans to attend the Genealogy Fair in Augusta it is on July 11, 2015 from 9 am to 4 pm at the Library/Archive/Museum complex.
