For more than 40 years, place based historian Jay Robbins of Richmond has been documenting connections between Maine’s people, places and property. On Sunday, March 1, Robbins will share gleanings from his research. The talk, which begins at 1 p.m. in the County Communications Building behind the court house in Wiscasset, is part of the Lincoln County Historical Association’s Winter Lecture Series, according to a news release from the association.

In this all-new presentation, Robbins will examine research strategies and types of records that reveal historical details about people, place, and property. “We’ll discuss record keeping forms, jurisdictions, record repositories, research methods, starting points and shortcuts, and much more,” Robbins said in a news release.

Robbins said that this talk will rely more on show-and-tell and less on Powerpoint illustration illustration than his traditional presentations. He plans to allow plenty of time for Q & A, so attendees are urged to bring their genealogy questions.

Suggested donation is $5. Coffee and pastries will be served. For more information, contact Ed Kavanagh at 882-4393.

The Lincoln County Historical Association is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization that provides stewardship for the 1754 Chapman-Hall House in Damariscotta, the 1761 Pownalborough Court House in Dresden, and the 1811 Old Jail and Museum in Wiscasset. For more information, visit
