Prince Edward County Archives

An effort needs to be made to identify Samuel Smith and locate him as a resident of Sophiasburgh. The book has 208 Pages (images) and we only transcribed a few pages as it was not an easy task. Our work is posted here with the permission of the archives. See the surname index that starts at image 03.
