Almost New
For the past 5+ years, I have been revising "The Eliot Record Book", a listing of cemeteries with photographs of all the markers (where possible) in Eliot, Maine, a colaborative effort. The vast majority of the "legwork" has been done by Rosanne M. Adams. This part of the documentation effort is in the review process, so the finished work might be available sometime in 2019. The original files are HUGE; PDF files of individual sections (raw data) will be availble as they are completed. (The first 21 sections are now available) See "Photos and Documents" for our PDF Books page.

New Projects
Any person that is a direct descendant of Jeremiah Goodwin of Milton, NH, should have no problem with an SAR or DAR application.

About Us.....
Limited Genealogies reprinted from The Goodwin News are available. Check under Getting Started.

The New England Goodwin Project is dedicated to helping amateur and Professional Genealogists. For several years, we have been sharing research results on several different forums - now it is time to promote and share a centralized data collection. We continue our information and database sharing transcribed from original sources and sharing our favorite research tools and resource sites.
Many New England Goodwins share a common ancestor. Daniel Goodwin immigrated from England about 1630, and began a journey that spread seeds throughout the United States and beyond.
How did he get here? Exacly where did he come from? Did he arrive alone?
This is where the real fun starts!
The story of Daniel's descendants may never be fully known, but as research moves froward more and more Family Trees will become available.
