Welcome to the Atlantic Canada Team, part of the Canada Project. The purpose of this team is to bring together WikiTreers with an interest in the families that lived in this area, to:

  • share genealogical resources
  • create accurate, well sourced genealogies
  • use categories and free space pages to describe the families, communities, and events that shaped the region.



Atlantic Canada is the name given to the present-day provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. This area has a rich history, with a diversity of people and languages, and names and borders that changed over time. The Canada Project is committed to do our best to represent this history accurately, and these people with respect.

While the Atlantic Canada Team focuses primarily on dates after 1713, and the Treaty of Utrecht, there are projects and resources for earlier years. Prior to European colonization, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island were Mi'kma'ki lands, Newfoundland had Beothuk People, and Labrador had Inuit peoples. There is a First Peoples Canada Team that focuses on the history of these groups. After European colonization, much of Atlantic Canada was Acadian, and Acadian profiles are managed by the Acadian Project.

How to join the Atlantic Canada team? My great grandparents, Alexander MacDonald and Mary Jane MacNeil, were from Nova Scotia. Through records and DNA I have discovered many ancestors there. I am especially interested in finding out more about the Beaton family, for whom I have many DNA links, but no records, a similar situation with tracing the MacDonalds back to Scotland (so very many MacDonalds, so few records), and the Gretteau - Mallard family of Lunenburg/
