NOTE: Both books are being revised thanks to a significant contribution from Beth Frederick; the JEF book should be available soon, and the JHG book shortly thereafter.

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.

Peabody: Mrs. Lynda Jane (MacWhinnie) Collier 79, of Peabody, died 15 August 2020 at Lahey Burlington, surrounded by her family following a battle with Alzheimer's disease.
Born in Salem, she was the daughter of the late Melvin and Ruth (Maxwell) MacWhinnie. She was raised and educated in Gloucester, Middleton and Manchester. Lynda worked as a crossing guard for the town of Beverly, where she was adored by many at the Cove School then later became a Senior Buyer at Analogic Inc.
Lynda was the best mother to her children and the most amazing "Mammy" that her grandchildren and great-grandchildren could ever ask for. She never missed a dance recital, play, baseball game or band competition.
Lynda was a descendant of Daniel Goodwin of ancient Kittery, ME, Stephen Annis of Wells, ME., and Richard Newton of Sudbury MA.
Lynda, a long-time resident of Peabody MA and The Villages FL, wife of Will Collier for 33 years, is survived by her children and their spouses, Deborah Righter of Milford, Robert Patch of Clinton, Christine Patch of Swampscott, Lara (Collier) Sturm of GA, Sherry Collier of Haverhill, her 10 grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by son Stephen Patch, brother Melvin MacWhinnie and sister Carol (MacWhinnie) Hannibal and mother Ruth (Maxwell) MacWhinnie. Lynda will be deeply missed by all that knew her and for those that loved her there will be forever an emptiness in their hearts that can never be filled.
ARRANGEMENTS: Visiting hours will be held for Lynda at Campbell Funeral Home, 525 Cabot Street, Beverly on Thursday 20 AUG from 10am to 12pm. Relatives and friends are invited to attend. In lieu of flowers, please send donations for Alzheimer's Research in Lynda's memory to Alzheimer's Association, 480 Pleasant St., Watertown, MA 02472
