A family that had been "cursed" with 100 years of baby boys finally had a baby girl. After 100 Years of Baby Boys - A Baby Girl was Born!

Maine's Masonic Membership Records

Maine's Masonic Members - 1820-1995| A good source of information on a male ancestor can be found for those who belonged to Masonic Lodges. If you even remotely think an ancestor was a member, which most males were during some time in their lives in the late 1800s and into most of the 20th century, you need to find that lodge to see what records are available. #masonic #ancestors #genealogy #ME #StatebyState #history
