Civil War era Bridgton Newspapers, the Reporter from 1858-1863, and the Sentinel, 1863-1864 are now on-line thanks to a partnership with the Maine State Library.
The Bridgton Cemetery Records are being kept up-to-date by Kathleen Vincent. This endeavor was started by Evelyn Lamb, assisted by Linda Johnson. Evelyn and the late Lois Lane initiated the project by listing burials and information on each of the 29 town and private cemeteries. Books containing this information are available for reference at the Museum. Books are consulted frequently by those individuals doing genealogical research.
