I was born and raised in Castine/Penobscot and my family still lives there. The Castine Historical Society is not yet set up for doing much research unless one makes an appointment with Sally Foote. The Witherle Library in town has a small collection but again one needs to do his/her own searching. The following I feel are better avenues: www which will give you the Penobscot,Me. Projects Roots Web--Reidhead is listed in its Surnames and Family group sheets. Castine and Penobscot have been linked historically since the 1600's and are close neighbors-for example I was born in Castine,used its library,belonged to its church,Girl Scouts,played with its children,etc. but went to school in Penobscot. Mary Ellen Gross,Town Clerk in Penobscot,zip code 04476 and Susan Macomber Town Clerk in Castine zip 04421 are very helpful. By the way both towns are in Hancock County. The Hancock County Historical Society can be reached via the Rootsweb or mail to the Public Library,Ellsworth,Me.. Both Penobscot and Hancock County have active queries on the web. Sorry, I know nothing about the Reidheads, however, do you have any connections to the Farnhams of W.Penobscot, Conners,Greys,Fitzsimmons(Simmons),Blodgetts,etc? Bev
