History & Listing of Universalist & Unitarian Ministers in Maine
Universalism was once Maine's largest denomination in the 1800s, with a church in nearly every town, based on their good news of Universal Salvation, and God was too good to create a hell for his children (except for what they create themselves). Then other churches stopped preaching the bad news of hellfire and damnation, and took up the Universalist message. Take note of ministers on old marriage records and see what churches your ancestors belonged to.  1/18 update is now over 800.
