According to a statement released by the Maine State Library:
The Maine State Library is pleased to announce that Ancestry.com is now available for access from three quarters of Maine public libraries, through MARVEL: Maine’s Virtual Library. Ancestry Library Edition includes more than 7,000 databases giving access to censuses, vital records, immigration, family histories, military records, legal documents, directories, photos and maps.
Check the list for current participating public libraries http://www.maine.gov/msl/services/ancestry.shtml and a series of 3 online tutorials with an introduction and search tips. By Jan 1, 2012 100% of Maine public libraries are expected to offer Ancestry.com.
Please note that Ancestry is only available for use within those libraries; persons wishing their own accounts must subscribe as individuals.
