Early New Brunswick (Canada) Probate Records, 1785-1835
This important contribution to the history and genealogy of the Maritime Provinces contains detailed abstracts of all the extant probate records of New Brunswick from the time it was set off from Nova Scotia as a separate province until 1835. The abstracts were made from the probate files at the New Brunswick Provincial Archives, and were cross-checked against the records of the individual counties. In addition, whenever there are conflicting data, further research was done using other sources. Whenever the conflicts could not be resolved, it is so indicated in the abstracts. The abstracts are quite complete, giving residences, occupations, relationships, and other items of genealogical interest for all the parties mentioned in the files. The entries are arranged alphabetically by the name of the deceased or other principal, and there is a cross-index to all the buried names. 1989, 5Â½x8Â½, paper, index, 558 pp.
