ABOUT THE COLLECTION: This collection was prepared in 2006 to assist family historians identify and locate genealogical data in the resources at the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick (PANB). The Family Profile contains a description of the record source or sources to help the researcher locate the material at PANB. The data in each Family Profile is only for the first family of that surname to arrive in New Brunswick. Acadians, Pre-Loyalists and Loyalists, who arrived in the province with older children who immediately married and began having children, may have two generations of their family described.
