My family has deep roots in Downeast Maine. My ancestors migrated to Washington County, Maine in the late 1700s. My father, his parents, and grandparents all grew up and lived in and around the town of Jonesport, Maine. I spent many summers in Jonesport as a child. I have a lot of fond memories of Jonesport. I created this blog to share my family research with others that may find it useful also. I also hope to meet some of my distant downeast relatives through this blog.
A little more about me:
Both of my father’s parents and my mother’s father were in the service during WWII. This is probably why I joined the Air Force after high school. I was in the Air Force for 8 years. I am a veteran of Desert Storm. I am a proud American.
I have been married for nearly 20 years. I am fortunate to have four kids that also appreciate going downeast to visit family and explore Jonesport.
I make a living as a technologist in New York City during the week, but I live in Maine.
Hobbies: History, Genealogy, Working on old photos in Photoshop, Drinking American Craft Beer, playing with my kids.
