About Us

We welcome you to come visit and learn more about the Irish in Maine. In the fall and winter months, the Museum is open by appointment.

Genealogy research has become the number one past time in the world!
Are you interested in family history? Do you need some guidance with your Irish research? Would you like to review your DNA results with an administrator of our Maine Gaeltacht DNA project?

The Maine Irish Heritage Center (MIHC) has volunteer genealogists who will be happy to guide you in your search! This is a great way to work on your family tree while helping to raise funds for the MIHC for programming and further enhancement of our Genealogy and DNA research department.
