Project: New Brunswick

Categories: New Brunswick Project | Canada | Canadian History Project

This project covers New Brunswick from 1784 to present day. (For ancestors before this date, check out the Nova Scotia Project for 1713 to 1784, and WikiTree's Acadians Project for dates before 1713.)

The goals of the New Brunswick Project are:

  • to create and improve profiles of famous and notable New Brunswickers,
  • to create Free Space profiles for events, places, and other topics of genealogical interest pertaining to New Brunswick,
  • to bring together WikiTreers with an interest in New Brunswick families, and to share resources to further research.


The leader of this project is Bob Jewett.
