(updated 6 February 2015)


Welcome to the Genealogy of Mount Desert Island home page, part of the Mount Desert Island Cultural History Project.

Purpose of this web page: Many people are working on genealogies of various Mount Desert Island families, but there is much duplication of effort. The purpose of this web page is to provide an accessible source for genealogical information about Mount Desert Island families, including documentation when available, so that no one will have to “reinvent the wheel”. The web pages linked to below usually do not contain information about all descendents of the first resident by that name on Mount Desert Island. For example, if a son or daughter moved away, that person’s line is probably not followed. Instead, these pages are intended to illuminate relationships among people who are encountered when studying the history of Mount Desert Island.

How to contribute: All information (including images) should be e-mailed to or sent by traditional mail to MDI Genealogy, c/o Mount Desert Island Historical Society; P. O. Box 653; Mount Desert, ME 04660.

To begin exploring the genealogy of Mount Desert Island families, click on a surname below that you are interested in. Within each surname, family units are arranged alphabetically by the first name of the father (or single-parent mother). Links are provided to enable you to move up and down each lineage. When documentation becomes available, it will be posted with a link to it.
