Where can I find old property records for my ancestors that lived in Kent County New Brunswick? I would love to be able to locate the properties where my ancestors lived. I have asked our local property assessment office in Richibucto and they don't really know. I would like to know where in Bouctouche Jean Savoie lived as well as where Olivier Savoie lived prior to moving to Saint Maurice, New Brunswick.

Cool site, Greg. Thanks! Found references I can use.
I have tried the Provincial archives. There is nothing there for Olivier Savoie.

The New Brunswick Archives my have references to the land grants but you can also find the on FamilySearch.org. An often overlooked resource is the Catalog. Search for New Brunswick, Canada and check in the Land Records section. You probably have to go to a Family History Center to access the records. The NB Archves has an index (an index should not be used as evidence, just for what it is -- an index to the real records). They charge for copies unless you physically travel to the archives and look on the microfilm. The FamilySearch records are digital microfilms of most of the same records. (there is an FHC in Moncton).
