Below are some links I thought might prove helpful. If you know of any good links for Nickerson family web sites or sites for families related to the Nickersons please let me know and I will try and add them here. A lot of these links are for Maine and the Hancock County area. That is only because my branch of the Nickerson family is from that area. Last updated August 17, 2009

This database contains information provided by the Social Security Administration through the end of January 2001 and contains 65,303,900 records. It is hosted by Ancestry.com. I found that while the death dates are usually accurate the birth dates are not always right. I found a cousin we had been searching for in this database. We weren't sure if he was still living or not. If a person was born before Social Security or had retired after it was begun they may not be in here. Also if a person has a Social Security number but the department hasn't been notified of their death they will not come up.
