Data Sources

As time permits, I will be going back over my genealogy web pages to match up the sources for the material that I have used on this web site. Unfortunately, when I first began this site 7 years ago I did not integrated these sources into the site itself.

My Master Sources will be listed on this page along with a corresponding alphanumnerical symbol to represent them (i.e.; PA = Provincial Archives, HsI = Headstone inscription; MBM = Michael B. Melanson, Parish Resitry = Rg, etc.) as they will appear throughout the site. Due to the large volume of pages, data and individuals contained within this site I will not be able to insert complete source referrences at each instance for each individual (all data is entered manually). Rather, this master list will give fellow researchers an idea of what material I have gone through to obtain my data.

For those that need the specific source information for any specific piece/s of data, feel free to email me the details of the data and I will happily look up the exact source.
