The primary idea for this section was to place online some
photos of churches where your ancestors may have worshiped and had ordinances
performed. This expanded into a listing of all churches in given areas
of the province, which I soon realized needed a uniform breakdown. There
are fifteen counties within NB, which I have used. Some have been broken
down by Parish groupings.
The job of finding picture of all these churches looked daunting at
this point, so I began to scour the net, to find where pictures were already
online. I found many in the official Church sites, and still others on
private sites. This lead to a linking process that has cut the number of
originals needed down to a more manageable size.
Finding the names of NB Churches was relatively easy for the Anglican
and Catholic Churches, both of which have sites for their Cathedrals, with
links to some of their Parishes, or listings of them. However, these lists
to be really useful needed more information, since many of the names were
used several times within their own denominations, and even cross denominations.
This sent me to NB Tel's Power Pages, where many were listed with addresses
and phone numbers (some with e-mail addresses).
At that point I began to think that perhaps I should include a cross
reference to where the records for these churches could be found. This
sent me to the listings of films at the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick.
At the moment, this seems to be too large an undertaking to incorporate
onto my list.
I have begun to add some church history, either my own, or cross linked
to items on other site - mainly the County GenWeb sites. Should you have
anything to contribute, I would be please to receive it.
