The Eastport Sentinel served almost all of Washington County, Maine as well as adjacent Canada. During this 82 year period it brings you vital records of one and all, high and low, rich and poor, together with all manner of other data. Included here are 11,538 deaths, 6,142 marriages, 670 births, and 14,410 tax records, together with a few hundred probate notices and similar items - in all 45,000 index entries! All 2,575 extant issues of this weekly newspaper are included here; the balance of 1,651 issues are apparently now lost for good.
Washington County is a difficult county to research, and this massive new research tool is making a significant difference to many American and Canadian researchers.
