Anglican Registers Project - Background and Status
Project Background
The Anglican Church has had a presence in New Brunswick since 1768 when the Rev. John Eagleson was sent by the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts to minister to the people living in the Tantramar area of present-day New Brunswick.   Many more priests arrived in 1783 along with the United Empire Loyalists and as they established new congregations they started recording many of the events of church life - baptisms, confirmations, marriages, burials and others.  Beginning in the 1960s the Anglican Diocese of Fredericton attempted to gather and preserve these records and, while the process is not complete, there are now 755 registers of various types being held by the Diocesan Archives.  (You can read more about the history of the Diocesan Archives by clicking here.)
In May 2018 the New Brunswick Genealogical Society and the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick, which now manages the Anglican records on behalf of the Diocesan Archives, agreed to scan and transcribe the many registers and then to make them available to the public on the NBGS website.  Recruitment of a technical team and a large group of transcribers started in August 2018 and, following a pilot phase, the transcription project got under way in January 2019.
Many of the registers are very fragile and require delicate handling.  Scanning these registers and then enhancing the images takes a lot of human resources and some expensive equipment.  Fortunately, advances in technology - both hardware and software - have made it possible to enhance the scanned images and eliminate many of the problems that make the physical registers difficult to read.
Project Status
Most of the registers held by the Diocesan Archives of the Anglican Diocese of Fredericton have been transcribed.  However, registers continue to trickle in to the Archives and will be earmarked for scanning as they arrive.  Additionally, we are aware of registers that have been microfilmed in the past but have not been deposited 
As data is transcribed and cleaned, it is being moved from the transcription database to the ARP database. This means that new data is regularly being added to this site.
As of 6 Mar 2023, the site has:   
  • Registers for viewing - 2152
  • Register page images for viewing - 51,551
  • Transcribed Records for viewing - 504,114
  • Names for searching - 1,243,227
