Ancestry Library Edition--available from home (for the duration of this COVID-19 event)! If you are in Maine, you should be able to access Ancestry’s Library Edition at home (the same way you access to MyHeritage’s library version). To access it, go to https://library.digitalmaine.org/ and click on the link for the public library version (not the K-12 school version).
New England Historic Genealogical Society "To help people keep up their family history research from home, the NEHGS Library is providing free access to books on our Digital Collections website. These book collections, which are normally available only to American Ancestors and NEHGS members, include city directories, family history books, and local history books. Need an 1824 directory of Baltimore? Vital records of Hampton, New Hampshire? Or maybe you'd like to plan for a post-social-distancing family gathering by reading about past reunions of other families. You'll find all of these and much more in these digital book collections. If you have questions about the collections or stories of discoveries you have made in them, we'd like to hear from you. Please contact us email@example.com."
Software GRAMPS "Research, organize and share your family tree with Gramps. Gramps is a free software project and community. We strive to produce a genealogy program that is both intuitive for hobbyists and feature-complete for professional genealogists. It is a community project, created, developed and governed by genealogists."
