New Brunswick Genealogy Society Has a New Website

This bit of news slipped by me, and I hadn’t noticed that the New Brunswick Genealogical Society has a new web site.

They offer FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ's) which answers all the questions that you have about the NBGS.

They also have some interesting online indexes like the First Families Index.

The daughter of my 4x great grandfather Andrew BARCLAY (a Loyalist in Shelburne, Nova Scotia), whose name was Jane BARCLAY, married Dr. John Boyd, and they moved to Saint John, New Bruswick shortly after they were married. Both of their name are included in the “First Families Index" of surnames containing 104,626 entries. What a resourse!

They also have area death records online, surname research that is being conducted, information about their newsletter Generations, and a Forum that covers Home Children.

Go to the new web site at

If you want to do some research in New Brunswick records, I would suggest that you combine this site with the New Brunswick Archives web site at where you can search 3,048,551 names from 30 databases!
