"Using Deeds in Genealogy - A Goldmine of Information."
Deeds and land records can provide useful clues to our ancestors. This is especially true where Probate Records have been destroyed, as they have in early Cumberland County, Maine. Deeds can help you find ancestors who have escaped the census taker and provide information on family relationships, migration patterns, wealth, neighbors and more. Learn how to find them, how to read them, and how to use them in your genealogy research.

Our Mission

Every family is unique.
Dr. McCoy's mission is to help people discover:

  • Where did I come from?
  • Who are my kin?
  • What makes my family special?

In so doing they will gain a deeper understanding of their family stories, connect with kin, and create a family treasure to share.
