* 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
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:

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.

additions to this store of information. Research on the house you
