About Our Family Research

I am trying to do my family tree and find out as much as I can about my father's side of the family. My Father was Willard Samuel Carter, born in Hudson, Ontario, Canada. My Grandfather was Samuel Rafford Carter, born June 1, 1883 in Maine, died 1958 in Dryden, Ontario, Canada. Sam's bothers and sisters were: Sarah Carter(Howe)of Masardis Maine , Elizabeth (Nason)of Millinocket Maine, Vivian (Clayton, Greenlaw, Tompkins) of Maine & Mass. born December of 1888, Wallace who was lost in the woods when he was 16 years old,born March of 1891 and Clair Alton, born on December 21, 1896 in Masardis ME and died on October 24, 1984 in Oakield. Clair married Pearl L. Smith who was born on November 1, 1896 in Masardis ME and died in 1967 in Oakfield. From what I understand, the Carter's parents were John Atkinson Carter who was born in Ireland in 1849 and died in 1927 and Olive(Rafford)Carter who was born in 1857 and died in 1921. John's father was James Carter, born and immigrated from Scotland to Ireland then to Canada. I believe James was married to a Kennedy who was also born in Scotland, to Ireland, then to Canada. I don't know if James had any other children other than john. Samuel's children were: Willard Carter of Dryden Ontario Canada, Vivian Carter, who married Wally Field of Vancover British Columbia Canada, Lorraine Carter married Wally Euland of Dryden Ontario Canada and a half brother, Clifford Hart who married Jackie of Vancover British Columbia Canada. There may have been more children as my Grandfather came to Ontario Canada from Maine. Clair's children were: Clair Eugene Carter who married Eldora Porter. Clair and Eldora's children are Jeffery Alan, Vaughn Lewis, Andrea Denise, Michael Dean, Dana Wallace and Wendell Clair of Easton, ME , Nina Olive who married James Weir. Nina and James' child is Sheila of Enfield, Conn. Robert Carroll who married Ethel Dow. Robert and Ethel's children are John Robert, Cathy Lynn, Ronald Kevin and Dianne Louise of Presque Isle ME. Judith Jane who married Robert Heath. Judith and Robert's children are Lori, Lisa and Carter from Patten. I know there is more information out there, I just don't know where to begin looking. I am just starting with my search. Any help would appreciated.
