The collections in the Beyond Borders project are of immense value for students of early American history. This project will not only broaden public access to invaluable collections...but also preserve fragile documents for future generations.

About Beyond Borders: Transcribing Historic Maine Land Documents

Maine Historical Society received a grant in the summer of 2020 from the National Endowment for the Humanities to fully digitize three significant land collections covering 1625-1893. In addition to digitization, Maine Historical is making an effort to transcribe these collections for easier access to their historic content. Once completed, the digital representation of these collections and their transcriptions will be available through the Maine Memory Network.

Check back often as we will be adding additional images as we complete the digitization of these three collections!
