I started this project in 2004, as I wanted to know more about the men who had enlisted from York County, Maine, as my 3rd Great-Grandfather did in 1862, into what would become the Twenty-Seventh Regiment of Maine Volunteer Infantry. The following year, I registered the27thMaine.com domain name, and began building a website. An early version is seen (at left) from a 2007 screen shot.
The design has changed several times over the years, due to changes with the host servers, but the information provided and the tabbed pages have generally remained the same.
The screen shot at right is from a 2010 version of the website, which I used until moving over to the Weebly site builder in 2013, where this site currently resides.
I hope that, in this coming new year, I will be able to make more trips to the cemeteries located out of state, and continue recording these burial sites. With many newspapers now being scanned and uploaded online, especially those from the New England states, finding more information about the 27th Maine and its volunteers is getting a bit easier. Lets hope that it leads to solving a few of these "dead ends" I have.
Here's to 2019!
