Genealogy Research

Genealogy is the number one hobby in America today. As a result, municipal clerks' offices receive numerous requests for information. Some birth, marriage and death records for Camden residents date back to 1794. However, records before 1892 are not a complete listing.

Helpful Hints: 

1) Prior to 1892, towns were not required to file records of birth, marriage and death. Some towns have records before 1892, but these may not be a complete recording of events. 

2) Unsure where the event took place? Begin by contacting the State. They maintain copies of records from every town in Maine. 

3) Be sure to check family bibles, city directories, obituaries, old maps, old photographs, town history books and old newspapers for information. 

4) State Archives keeps a list of professional genealogists who provide research for a fee.
