We need your help! We have a new collection on our website of family registers. Do you have a family bible register you'd like to share with the members of NBGS? Qualifying registers would have birth dates prior to 1929 and marriage and death dates prior to 1974 (we can redact few dates for you if necessary), and at least some of the family must have lived in New Brunswick during the time frame of the register. We need your register scanned or photographed in either JPEG or PDF format. We’d like you to include a brief explanation about the family in the register and/or a transcription of the names and dates. Thank you for any assistance you can provide for this new project. You can send your register to
