The first place you should always look for state-specific laws is the .gov page of the state. For example, in Maine you would look at www.maine.gov; likewise, in Massachusetts, you would look at www.mass.gov. Each of these sites has a map and a search function, which should let you find most of the state laws concerning both probate and last will laws.

For more specific information, you can search third-party sites, which may or may not have more information. The website Legalzoom has pages on state-specific laws, but they are for information only, and are subject to changes in state law. Here is information on Maine last wills. Massachusetts has a Law Library site; here is their page on last wills.

For probate law, a search for the state and "probate law" will give you most of the information you need. Here is a page for Maine Probate Law, and here is the Mass.gov Probate page.

Finally, the Library of Congress has the largest comprehensive Law Library online, and here are its pages on Maine and Massachusetts.
