Maine's Coastal Cemeteries: A Historic Tour icon
"'It is a well-kept secret that people love cemeteries,' says author Karen Batignani, 'and the interest in them is growing rapidly.' In this guidebook, she presents thirty-five of Maine's most beautiful, historic, and interesting coastal cemeteries, each described in a lively and informative way. Descriptions include their locations, as well as information about unusual epitaphs, notable carvings, historically relevant details, folklore, and stories about well-known stonecutters, prominent people, and war veterans. She also delves into a brief history of New England graveyards, changes in headstone styles through time, and how those changes reflect changing cultural attitudes toward death. She even includes advice on graveyard etiquette and photography tips. This guide will appeal to anyone interested in graveyards, graveyard art and photography, and history--as well as those who want to discover more beautiful Maine places to visit."

Art of Family: Genealogical Artifacts in New England
"In this lavishly illustrated volume, which features over 200 halftones and sixteen color plates from public and private collections, distinguished experts in history, art, and genealogy explore the important but often overlooked relationship between material culture and family history in New England during the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth centuries. The contributors examine a broad range of family record artifacts, including genealogical samplers, mourning embroideries, pen-and-ink family registers, gravestones, heraldica, textiles, furniture, silver, and portraiture. An indispensable resource on the world of decorative arts and its significance in preserving 'family identity,' this beautiful work provides much valuable information and research clues for modern-day genealogists."

HAMILTONS of Waterborough, York County, Maine: Their Ancestors and Descendants icon
"David Hamilton, a Scottish prisoner who was transported to Charlestown, MA in 1651, soon settled in Dover, NH. His ancestry and descendants are detailed here, with emphasis on five Hamilton brothers, great-grandsons of David, who moved from Berwick, ME to Waterboro, ME in the 18th century. The standard Register format is used and documentation, particularly for the 17th and 18th centuries, is good. Because of the extensive records of Waterboro, ME which Mr. Hamilton included in his book, and the loss of much of Waterboro's records in major fires in 1911 and 1947, his book is often the only source for the existence, location, and description of early landmarks. Excellent for Hamilton descendants and students of the towns of Dover and Rollinsford, NH and the Maine towns of Waterboro, Saco, Berwick and South Berwick."

A Day's Work: A Sampler of Historic Maine Photographs, 1860-1920, Part II icon
"These extraordinary collections of photographs and narrative captions have wide appeal to anyone interested in Maine's past. Spend an afternoon with either volume of A Day's Work, and you'll make discoveries that will change how you look at Maine's passing scene. Bunting has a knack for spotting the unusual in a photograph, or some minor detail that, in fact, tells a major story about the how and why. From granite quarry operations to an itinerant cobbler in a sailing scow to hootchie cootchie dancers at the state fair to deepwater ships, his page-long captions place these images in social and economic context—but this is not dry history. His research has uncovered a wealth of fascinating, often quirky detail (did you know that mummy wrappings were imported from Egypt for Maine papermaking?), and he makes frequent forays into the Maine storytelling tradition."
