York County, Maine Newspapers

The USGenWeb Project York County, Maine Newspapers

York county is located just South of Portland, Maine, and about 45 miles North of Boston. Both Portland and Boston newspapers are widely read in York County.

York also has a number of local newspapers, each serving a town, region or the whole county.

None of these local papers have obituary or other archives available on line. Many offer archive research for a fee.

Below are links to some of these newspapers. An attempt was made to link to the section of most interest to genealogists, however, for current information you may want to return to the home page by removing everything after the ".com" in your browser's address field.
