A Genealogical History of Freeman, Maine, 1796-1938, In Three Volumes - George A. Thompson and F. Janet Thompson. Without ever moving from its original survey site, the town of Freeman has been in two states and five counties. As a result, historians of many different New England regions will be interested in this set, which is more than just a town history. In addition to the sections addressing a variety of historical topics, there is a large genealogical register containing information on nearly every family that has lived in Freeman during the time period covered. The town history contains sections on: the formation of the town; town meetings; transportation and travel; mail service; the Agricultural Society and Grange; schools, teachers, and religion; the military; town news through the years; and “Reflections,” with a myriad of articles and stories about the way things used to be. Each volume has its own every-name index. George and Janet Thompson were founding members of the Maine Genealogical Society and have been compiling information on Freeman, Maine, since 1970.
