HISTORICAL RESEARCH
* Readfield town records are complete all the way back to the time of incorporation in 1791. At the time of the United States Bicentenial in 1776 an Old Records Committee was appointed by our town officers. Committee members proceeded to pour over all old town records for 10 years during which time they created a file for each resident up to the year 1900. As a result, file cards which are located at Readfield Historical Society  include information such as:
School District # residents lived in
Church affiliation
Town offices held
Place of burial
Vital Statistics (births, deaths, marriages)
There is also have genealogical information shared by descendants of several old Readfield families.

Additional Information that can be found at RHS include:

* Scrapbooks of Readfield related news articles and obituaries contain information as far back as the early 20th century. The scrapbooks are available for research or your enjoyment, and are continually updated. Each scrapbook is indexed making research a much easier task.

* Many, many old pictures from Readfield schools, businesses, families, clubs and organizations are available for viewing.

* Research has been done on some of the old homes in Readfield. We welcome additions to this store of information. Research on the  house you are interested in may already be available upon request.

* Interested in where your ancestors lived or where they are buried? Tours of our town with a member of the Society may be arranged by appointment.

The Readfield Historical Society  appreciates donations
