Brick Wall Suggestions [11 February 2013]

Amelia,

What probate research have you done on these Maine families? I'm not familiar with Maine records, specifically, but generally have seen breakthroughs of brick walls through probate records-- and land deeds, as well.

Hi Jillaine! I'm reasonably sure I checked whatever indices were available at NEHGS when I lived in Boston, with nothing looking interesting enough to follow up on -- and I probably didn't seriously look at the Burnhams because John Burnham is just too common of a name. I also have a memory that I specifically looked at Lincoln County and/or Maine probate looking for Solomon and Ephraim, but in my younger years I was not great about recording dead ends. It's a good reminder to figure out what's now available online or otherwise accessible.--Amelia 23:41, 11 February 2013 (EST)
