Hi again! Being a former resident of Durham myself, I just created, which links to this profile as well. An important aspect of the WikiTree project (but so far underutilized) is the potential for adding historical context to family history and the unusual collaboration this can spark. By creating general pages with links to individual ancestors we're giving Google something to index. This way, down the road if someone out there searches for "Durham" or "Durham, Maine", they have a good chance of ending up here and hopefully participating - and connecting. Crystal

Hi Emily! This public profile caught my eye when I saw Durham, Maine. I lived in Durham until I was 20... On Stackpole Road... The house I was raised in was moved by oxen... Fascinating! I wonder if there are some connections here... Crystal Williams - WikiTree Community Assistant - crystal @ (no spaces)
