You'll need to check the vital records for Maine, to see when they began keeping birth and marriage records....and, where they're warehoused.. (at the county or state level). This goes for Death certificates, too, as they often contain valuable information of parents, place of birth, etc. You could check with the rootsweb site for whatever county you're speaking of, and see what they offer in the way of lookups, and what info they have on the site. You can join the rootsweb gen. list for whatever the county through their archives, and pose your query to the other list members. You can do a little research and see what newspaper would service the area where they live, and check to see if you can come up with an Obituary. If he was born in 1894, have you looked for him in the 1900 Federal Census? He will be enumerated by name, and be in the household of his parents.... have you looked for the family of Alber? Surely they could give you information on his family...and, he would also have probably had a newspaper obit.
These are, in general, the way to get started.
