The Maine Genealogist - May 2008

Joseph C. Anderson II, FASG, Editor of The Maine Genealogist reports:

"With the publication deadline for the next issue of The Maine Genealogist always seeming to loom around the corner, I am deeply grateful to our authors who have contributed a steady stream of well-researched and interesting articles to share with our readers. Special mention must be made of Leslie Dow Sanders, who for years has provided this journal with many valuable Bible records and other family sources. Leslie has an uncanny ability for locating these items in all sorts of places, including the Internet, used book stores, and auction sites such as eBay. By publishing these records in the journal, we are preserving precious - and often fragile - family information, which may not be available anywhere else."
