Genealogist's Handbook for Atlantic Canada Research Paperback – June, 1997
Top Customer Reviews
Each section is written by a different author, a genealogist certified by the Genealogical Institute of the Maritimes. The following is taken from the preface: "The Genealogist's Handbook for Atlantic Canada Research is intended to be a companion to a similarly named book for research in New England. It is not a methods manual, but a guide to the location of records, repositories and genealogical societies in Atlantic Canada: New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island."
Each geographic section is further broken down into concise subsections (generally 2 pages or less): Historical Overview; Major Archives; Vital Records; Census Records; Land Records; Probate Records; Church Records; Cemetery Records; Immigration; Museums, Libraries and Societies; Newspapers; Periodicals; and Bibliography.
Readers should note the author's statement that the book is not a methods manual. Inside you'll find no general advice, subjective analysis or professional insights. Rather, this handbook is a list of what resources exist, generally why they exist, the time periods they cover, and the information they contain. References are given to books with more in-depth information on certain topics. The extensive bibliographies are a highlight.Read more ›
