What is Cape Breton Counties Genealogy?
As one link in the Nova Scotia GenWeb Project, this site subscribes to the overall objectives of the project, the details of which can be found at the Provincial site.
Initially, any site reflects the knowledge and resources of only a few people, but since the inception of this site in 1996, Cape Breton Counties Genealogy has become a real community effort, in the true spirit of Cape Bretoners. The aim is to pull together all available resources and make them accessible from one site, at no cost.
If you know of a link or a resource or have a homepage that should be included on the site, please let us know. If you are able to transcribe original (unpublished) records, provide a list of useful books, or are willing to do lookups from your own resources, we will appreciate and give credit to your participation. Almost all the pages on this site represent the original work of volunteers, other than the site coordinator. Consequently, I am not the best person to ask for further information. I have a limited knowledge of any families other than my own lines. The e-mail address of the author of most pages is usually included on the page. This would be your best resource. Please keep in mind that as site coordinator I do not consider it my task to do lookups or research for anyone, although I will be as helpful as I can in directing you elsewhere. Of course, any bad links, submissions of transcriptions, links to new resources, etc., should be directed to the Cape Breton GenWeb host.
Please enjoy the information provided and thanks to all who helped provide it.
