NEW BRUNSWICK GENEALOGY CLUES REPOSITORY

Updated on 10 August, 2006

Please e-mail Diane McLeod to add your clues to the page

For all those of you interested in genealogy matters related to New Brunswick, this page is for you!

We've all surfed the 'Net combing through thousands of websites, finding clues that have helped in our own personal searches and many of us have tried to pass some of that information on through the mailing lists we belong to or on our own websites. My experience, however, says that there has to be a better way... so, here's the start of our repository.

If you come across a site, a single page on a site (or a single paragraph for that matter) that has been helpful in your search for New Brunswick family, please e-mail me with the site/page address (URL) together with a brief synopsis of what the site or page relates to and I will be happy to post the information here (please reference "NB Clues Repository" in your e-mail). I will NOT vet the information because if you found it helpful in your research, someone else might as well. I will, however, DISCLAIM all responsibility for the contents of the information listed here - you know the drill... never assume and don't take anything as gospel unless you see the primary source. I will also NOT link to commercial/pay-for-info sites no matter how invaluable they may seem unless they have free historical/genealogical information available as well.

I should also point out that these links are freely accessible on the Internet and I have absolutely no interest in them except for the information which they may impart. This is simply a way of gathering, into a small database, the information about our New Brunswick families that's sitting on computer hard-drives all over the world, to assist each other in disseminating that information. This can't be done without input from all of you seasoned researchers out there so please take a moment to send me your invaluable clues.

For those of you who have information that you've paid for but are willing to share, please send me the text and I will gladly convert it to HTML and post the information. If you have information that is copyrighted but that you wish to share through lookups, please advise me of your shareable resource(s) and your e-mail address and I will post that as well.

And to all of you whose pages we cite or whose expertise we obtain through your generosity, thank you so much. GOOD HUNTING!
