I'm looking for a plat book on historic homesteads in, and around the
Dover area of Dover,Maine. If I may explain why. I am plaining to travel
to Maine, from Michigan to complete my family genealogy. I am so hoping
to find my great-great-great- grandfathers homestead. We are talking
about the late 1700's-early 1800's. Any help? Thanks.

sparsons.

Here's a link to get you started,... The town hall would have records. There may even be a pic there. Good luck.

You're quite welcome. Welcome to the forum and hope you get up this way. Now I'm curious which family homestead it is that you're looking for.

sparsons,
Since you're going back so far in years, you might start here at the Mayflower site. Good links about geneology, too.
Mayflower Society

My cousin from Sebec Lake did research on our family a few years ago and found out we are related to three families on the Mayflower. Our family in Dover Foxcroft are members of the Mayflower Society.

And msina, my sister from DF sent me the new Historical Societies DVD "Glimpses of Dover Foxcroft's Past". Quite impressive that so many from that era had taken so many cool photos, especially of the old opera house that burned down. Hope you get to see it.

That was nice of your sister to send the book to you! It must be nice to have familiar pictures from throughout the years.
