I've run into road blocks everywhere and nobody in my family has any information, either.
Here's my line back as far as I can go (which isn't very far):
I am Rebecca Edith (Douglass) Anderson b. 9/5/1966 Phila, PA dau of Martha Constance (Chesley) Douglass b. 7/12/1945 Lewiston, ME dau of Alfred Putnam Chesley b. 5/4/1915 Newton, MA d. 4/1/1984 East Sumner, ME son of Harold Gilbert Chesley b. 8/17/1873 Brighton, MA d. 1/30/71 Sumner, ME son of Henry Chesley
Henry Chesley m. Adele Shaw.I have no dates or locations.
I've never done a genealogy before and am hoping someone can give me some information on my family or point me in the right direction.
