State Archives Question

State Archives Question

I'm from Mass and the Archives has an online BMD index for the years 1841-1910. The BMD index for the years 1910-1970 is on microfilm and you would physically have to go to the Archives to look at that.

Does Maine Archives have anything like that?

I'm looking for a relative, Patrick Roper, who is on the 1910 Federal Census for Corinna, ME. Can't find him after that. Was hoping there was a death index that I could look at.

Thanks
Margaret

There isn't an index but there are records. You would need to search by name, possibly county and year until you find his death certificate. Have you had a chance to do this yet?

Thanks

I don't think they have anything online. I am planning on going to Augusta on Wednesday, and if you give me the info you have on your relative, I can look for his death certificate at the archives. My husband and I have done quite a bit of research there, and we would love to help. If there are any other records you need researched there, lets us know.

Aren't you wonderful!!!!

The relative is Patrick Roper born in Mass March 17, 1861 - parents Joseph and Bridsget(Leonard)Roper.

Like I said the last time I find him, I think(info matched), is on the 1910 Census in Maine.

Thank you very much
Margaret
