Maine native. I like cemeteries! If you have a relative buried in a Maine cemetery and would like a photograph of their headstone, please let me know and I can try and get one for you. I live in Cumberland county so my focus is that area for now, but once spring rolls around I plan to start branching out to York and Oxford counties.
My major focus is the Maine Cemeteries project. I've got four surveys going at once right now (Eastern Cemetery in Gorham, Black Point Cemetery in Scarborough, Smith Anderson Cemetery in Windham, and Saccarappa Cemetery in Westbrook) and am trying to finish at least one of these before I start any more.
Finished cemetery surveys:
I am working on creating/connecting profiles of several prominent families in Cumberland County, Maine. These names pop up frequently in the old graveyards I've surveyed. You may see me dabbling a lot in profiles of Harmons, Libbys, Larrabees, Mayberrys, Graffams, Quinbys, and Cloudmans.
Have you taken a DNA test for genealogy? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Ancestry DNA.

I sent you a message a week ago about the new-look Global Cemeteries Project but have not yet heard back from you. If you would like to continue in the project, please can you PM me your team(s) selections and your e-mail address for the Google group.
If I don’t hear back from you by this time next week I’ll assume you no longer wish to be in the project at this time.

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Global Cemeteries Project. The sub-projects have been merged into the Global Project to help with Leadership and to facilitate collaboration.
Some roles within the project have changed. From now on, there are Project Coordinators for each continent, and one for Welcome and Integration, plus Team Leaders for each individual Country etc.
Please let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project, if you’d like to continue in an existing role, and which team(s) you’d like to be on. Please also give me your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group.

I just took a look at the book source and see what you mean. If Patience Weston, b 1751 is created, I'd say that her mother should be uncertain, but she doesn't have a profile, perhaps it makes sense to leave it the way it is. I would suggest adding a Research Notes section with a comment that the birth record and the book differ as to whether or not she had a child, Patience, born in 1751, or whether the child was really her husband's second wife's child.

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!
Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects which coordinate them is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.
The Massachusetts Project may fit your research focus. If not, use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find other possibilities. Review the project page for resources as well as to learn how to collaborate with the project members.

Thanks for volunteering! You are now a full member of the WikiTree community, and can start adding your family. Let me know if you have any questions.
Since WikiTree is different from other genealogy sites, we have a guided tour for new members at New Member How-To. Feel free to work through the How-Tos at your own pace.
Once you add profiles to WikiTree they become searchable and in my experience persons interested in these profiles will contact you and may provide further information to expand your family tree.
Great to have you on board, enjoy, and good luck growing your branches.
