Latest News

In addition to the omission of Gouldsboro, Maine, in online index of the 1820 Census (mis-indexed as Scarborough, Hancock County, Maine), the town of Moscow, Maine, in Somerset County, Maine, is indexed improperly online.  Moscow is indexed as two different towns, "Mascow" and Moscow.  Even worse, several of the pages indexed online as Moscow are actually for "Warsaw", which was the name for the Pittsfield area in 1820.  This may be why you haven't been able to find your ancestor in the Moscow area or the Pittsfield area in 1820.
