Most of my families have been in the York County,
Maine area since the 1700's. All of my lines on this page were established
early in New England with the exception of some of my Scottish families.
Black, Rankin and Connally arrived in Maine between 1907-1909. I
have traced these back several generations in Scotland.
I now have an outline of my husband's German ancestry.
This family emigrated to the United States in the mid-1800's from Mecklenburg
and settled in Missouri.
The Blacks were living in Rutherglen (near Glasgow) prior to emigrating
to the US in 1907-9. My line is the only one that came to the
US. All my great grandfather's siblings stayed in Scotland.
The Rankins moved from Inch, Wigtownshire, Scotland to Ayrshire, to Rutherglen,
Lanarkshire before emigrating to the United States in the early 1900's.
One brother, Edward, remained in Scotland. He was married to Annie Davidson,
daughter of John and Mary Davidson. Edward and Annie had at least two sons,
James and John Davidson Rankin.
I traced the Connallys to Dalmellington, Ayrshire, Scotland in the 1840's.
My 2nd great-grandmother, Isabella Connally, was the daughter of Thomas
Connally and Rosanna Mills.
Here are a few of my favorite genealogy
resources for both Scottish and New England research.
My "Scottish Portrait Gallery" has photos of some
of my "most wanted" plus a few other images. I would be thrilled
if you recognize anyone!

Info related to the Burnham Family (mostly):
Transcript genealogy columns related to the Burnham families of Hollis
and Scarborough, Maine.
Revolutionary War pension files for David
Burnham of Essex Co., Massachusetts and Joseph
Burnham of Arundel, York Co., Maine. Neither of these men are
from my line of Burnhams but I thought the files might
be of interest to other Burnham reseachers.
I host a few USGenWeb pages for the York County,
Maine area Buxton,
Orchard Beach, and Saco
