Two places in NB (St John's Stone Church in Saint John, and the Swallow Tail lighthouse on Grand Manan) are among the ten heritage places in Canada vying for your vote to win $50,000 from the National Trust for Canada to help their community save a heritage place that matters. The competing groups have plans to adapt, retrofit, renew, or improve a heritage place in a way that extends its useful life, and meets community needs. Vote online for your favourite heritage place from January 20 – February 22.

Did you know that our Anglican Registers Project continues to grow? More registers are added regularly and additional records are available for viewing as privacy constraints expire. We now have over 2,000 registers and 50,000 images to view. There are nearly 1.2 million names available for searching. These registers date from the late 1700's to the most recent dates allowed under privacy rules (95 years for baptismal records, and 50 years for marriage and burial records) Register images are available for everyone to view (must create a guest account); search-by-name is availble to NBGS members only.

Have you checked out our Obituaries Project lately? It is an index to newspaper death notices and obituaries published in NB newspapers. Dates range from the 1800s to today. We continually add both historic and current notices from a variety of newspapers as we work towards filling in the gaps. There are now over 84,000 names for you to search. Check back regularly for updated notices.
