Atlantic Canada Links

Many families found in Colonial New York and New Jersey at the time of the American Revolution had members who remained Loyal to the British Crown. And many of them settled in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia at the end of the war. Tracing descendants and searching for ancestors in Canada can be a challenging experience for us living in the U. S. Here are some links for websites I've found useful for research in the Atlantic Canadian Provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia have been added to the links column at the right. Scroll down, they're just below "Book Sellers."

Sites for Ontario (Upper Canada) and Quebec (Lower Canada) to be added in future posts.

The sites added:
