Genealogical Society
 

The Washington County Historical and Genealogical Society is a group dedicated to historical preservation and genealogical research in Washington County, Maine. By working together historical societies, genealogists, and researchers can pool their limited resources, collaborate on larger scale projects, and promote each other's work.

Members will receive a quarterly newsletter Weirs & Woods, which features free queries, information and the exchange of genealogical material, in addition to news from the affiliating Washington County historical societies.

Membership in the WCHGS is open to anyone interested in learning more about their family genealogy and/or the history of Washington County and neighboring Charlotte County, New Brunswick.

Officers include: President, Betsy Fitzgerald of Bucks Harbor; Vice President, Celeste Sherman of Machiasport; Secretary, Valdine Atwood of Machias, and Treasurer, Carole Sprague of Marshfield.

Dues for individual members are $10 per year, payable to WCHGS and sent to Carole Sprague, 301 Ridge Road, Marshfield, ME 04654.

Historical societies can affiliate themselves with WCHGS by donating to the Society. All members who wish to receive a copy of Weirs & Woods are encouraged to email Celeste Sherman (folknoter@maineline.net) or visit this page for the most recent copy.

Regular meetings of WCHGS will be on a quarterly basis. ‘Extra meetings’ could be held during the year at the approval of the membership.
