Frederick R. Boyle, a native of Boston, Mass. grew up in nearby Medford. He has degrees from Colby College (B. A.), Boston University (M.A. in Ed.), and Harvard University (C.A.G.S.).
A retired High School teacher he spent his last twenty years at Lexington High School, where for seven years he was Director of the Education Without Walls program. He and his wife, the former Barbara Folsom, retired to Springvale, Maine from Reading, Mass. in 1985. His daughter, son-in-law and grandson live in Waltham, Mass. providing him another incentive for going to Massachusetts to visit and do research.
From 1985-2005 Boyle was a Certified Genealogist through the Board for Certification of Genealogists in Washington, D.C. Previous to this he was a Certified Genealogical Record Searcher through the same organization. Since retirement from teaching he has authored eight books, three of which were privately published. He is still an active professional genealogist with an active clientele. From 1985-2011 he was also a trustee of the Springvale Public Library where he served as an advisor for its extensive genealogy collection.
As a Professional Genealogist he specializes in searches of families in Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. He is a member of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, the Maine Historical Society and the New Hampshire Historical Society. Rate: $35.00 an hour, clients reimbursing for photocopying and postage.
Early Families of Lyman, Maine A decision was made in 2015 to compile another York. Co. Early Families book. Lyman, Maine was chosen because it not only bordered Alfred and Waterboro, towns already covered by the author, but also because it provided published vital records to provide authenticity to the research. Already more than one-half of the families enumerated in the 1790 census have been started. The author would welcome anyone with an interest in Lyman (at first settled as Coxhall) to share research. Those with new primary records will be acknowledged in the text. It is hoped that the new book will be ready for publication in 2017.
