Church Record Sunday: Bowdoin College
Have ancestors from Maine, Massachusetts or Washington D.C.? Look towards the Bowdoin College Library, George J. Mitchell Department of Special Collections & Archives. According to their web page for Church Records they have, "The 18th and 19th century records of several Maine, Massachusetts, and Washington, D.C. churches are held by Special Collections & Archives. Some relate to churches that no longer exist; others still hold services today. These historical documents range from deeds, to detailed record books, to correspondence concerning the church's founding."
A hyperlinked list of records appears on that web page but they also encourage researchers to search their online catalog or consult their staff for additional archived materials.
