Maine is a beautiful state. As a result of the Missouri Compromise, on March 3, 1820, the President signed the bill to make Maine the 23rd state to join the Union. Maine is located in the northeastern portion of the United States in New England, and it is bordered to the northeast by New Brunswick, to the northwest by Quebec, Canada, to the east by the Bay of Fundy, to the southeast by the Atlantic Ocean, and to the west by New Hampshire. For those researching their ancestors in Maine, they will find it a beautiful place full of history and friendly people.

The Maine website relates: “From the first hint of spring through the lazy days of summer, Maine is an outdoor wonderland. You can explore the coast, mountains, woods, rivers and lakes by kayak, bike or seaplane. Spot a majestic moose while camping or hiking. Relax at one of our sandy beaches. Board a boat for whale and puffin watching. Get to know the locals at a summer festival. Savor the ocean’s bounty at a Maine lobster bake. Tee off at a lakeside course. Or indulge in wild blueberry pie. Spring in Maine is everything you’d expect and so much more.” As I read this description, I realized this is what the early settlers of Maine probably felt as well.
