The Bicentennial Inscription Project (BIP) is a record of all Maine veterans of the Revolutionary War. Over 200 researchers participated in collecting information about the location of Revolutionary veterans in Maine. This was then computer-indexed, and copies of the printout placed in libraries in different parts of the state. The original notes taken by the researchers sometimes have far more facts than were given in the printout. These notes are on file at the Special Collections Department at Folger Library at the University of Maine, Orono.
Originally completed in 1976 for the U.S. Bicentennial, BIP was done in microfiche format. Those microfiche have worn out. We had a paper copy printed from the microfiche. Then Donna and Norm Conley have computerized this data between the Spring and Fall meetings in 2005!
Included are the names of over 7,500 veterans who had lived in Maine before, during, or after the war, with whatever data had been found as to birth, death, marriage, and burial location.
Now you can own a CD digital copy of this project for $10.00 plus $5.00 shipping.
