Portland to discover Gems in Deeds

The following notice has been received from the Greater Portland Chapter regarding their upcoming meeting scheduled for June 6, 2009.

Finding Gems in Deeds

Dr. Carol P. McCoy will present a talk on deeds. Deeds are a valuable research tool especially when early probate records have been destroyed as in Cumberland County, Maine. Our MGS Chapter has been conducting an exciting special project to index the early (1760-1796) deeds of Cumberland County. This talk will highlight some gems to be found in deeds and clarify ways to use deeds effectively to discover family relationships, locations, and other key information. Come learn about the wonders found in old deeds! You can visit her website at

Social time is 12:30. Meeting/program begins at 1 p.m. Our meeting is free and open to the public. We meet at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 23 Ocean Road, Cape Elizabeth, Maine.

For more information, call Linda @ 207.490.5709.
