Working on Notables is like genealogical chocolate - you can nibble on a snack, or make a meal of it.

From musicians to soldiers, scientists to business, government and religious leaders, Prince Edward Island provides a menu of Notable options to satisfy your craving! This partial list shows some PEI people who rose to success on the Island, and others who made their mark elsewhere. Some don't seem to have profiles on WikiTree yet, and many of the existing profiles may need help with genealogical sources, connections and categories.
