Newfoundland & Cape Breton Roots, Eh?


1:00 – Introduction with Richard Reid

Richard will cover what is on the seminar CD and the order for the day. We will preview a short video called “An Overview of Canadian Records”. Richard and Joe Petrie, the two

Friends of Irish Research presenters, are members of the Association of Professional Genealogists.

1:30 - Newfoundland Research with Joe Petrie (Q & A Session follows)

 Joe’s parents were from Cape Breton. Six of his Ancestors were Newfoundlanders who were originally from Ireland. As a regular contributor to Newfoundland Ancestor,

published by the Family History Society of Newfoundland and Labrador, Joe has a vast knowledge of resources that are available to researchers. His Newfoundland Ancestor articles are available

on the Friends of Irish Research website. Click on Joe’s Free Web Sites and Publications Tabs to see all of his writings. 

Joe will focus on using free Newfoundland web sites: FamilySearch, Ancestry Library and Newfoundland Grand Banks web sites - to find your relatives in Newfoundland. In addition to Ancestry,

he’ll cover two subscription sources. For the latter, he’ll show the cemetery database of FHSNL and of StonePics which has documented most of the cemeteries in Newfoundland. 

2:30 – Nova Scotia with Richard Reid 

Richard will focus on free Censuses, the normal starting point for professional genealogists. He’ll cover the Automated Censuses of 1852, 1901 and of 1911 (and other censuses in Ancestry).

For Vitals (Births, Marriages, Deaths and Burials), he’ll focus on NovaScotiagenealogy.org which for some Counties has been recently updated to 1964.

He will also explore a variety of traditional and some non-traditional research sites. 

3:30 –Cape Breton with Joe Petrie & Richard Reid (Q & A Session follows) 

Joe is a Research Correspondent for CBGHA. CBGHA resources are available to access at the weekly Friends meetings. For free databases, Joe will explore the RC Diocese of

Antigonish in Family Search (mostly Christenings and Marriages) and Cape Breton GenWeb (for obituaries). He’ll use the updated links document to identify the many free

services available to help you in your research of your Cape Breton heritage. At the end, Richard Reid (a native of North Sydney) will show some of his family research in Cape Breton.
