About the Maine USGen Web Project

In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Kentucky Comprehensive Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Kentucky, where collected databases would be stored. In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index.

At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page. The Maine USGen Web Project is an extension of the KY USGen Web Project. The person responsible for the Franklin County page

Franklin's county seat is Farmington. Records before 1838 are found in Augusta, South Paris and Skowhegan, and very early records are in Wiscasset (prior to 1799-1809).
