Biography

My major genealogical research interests are in Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland. I'm helping to coordinate the Atlantic Canada Team of volunteers as part of the Canada Project. This means you might encounter me setting up new categories for things like communities, and religions for Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador.

The Canada Project is here to help you find resources, research assistance, and to start grouping profiles together using accurate historical categories (groupings) for places (like communities, cemeteries, and churches) and events (like immigration, or disasters). This way, the whole community can benefit from the good work all the volunteers have been doing.

If you're not sure what any of this means, or if you're not sure what (or if) you want to contribute to these projects, I'd still encourage you to add nova_scotia, prince_edward_island, newfoundland, or new_brunswick to your followed tags. This will help you see what's going on in the G2G question, answer and discussion board with researchers in your area, and might give you some ideas about how you want to contribute.

If you have any other questions, please contact me!

Personal Info

Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1976; with a mix of Nova Scotian and Newfoundlander ancestry that goes back a number of generations. A 23andMe test indicates my ancestry is primarily western European---British, German, and French, with a little bit of Native American and African. Grew up, mostly, in Hants County. Spent several years in Japan, and then in Melbourne, and Brisbane, Australia. Now living in Los Angeles, California.

Hi Brad,

You were listed on the Newfoundland Research Assistance page. Can you help to connect Maurice Power and his wife, Adele Carroll? They lived in Conche, St. Barbe, Newfoundland. I've done all I can. They were Roman Catholics so any birth records would probably be found in those churches. Thanks for any assistance you may be able to provide!

Maurice is Power-3326
