Places to Go - Links
    This site has turned over the primary responsibility of collecting and gathering links for New Brunswick sources, to the capable hands of Todd Gilbert and his site, NB GenLinks. (Most links now found on this site will be those found within the site itself, or on one of my other four sites, and occasionally on the other GenWeb sites.)  When using NB GenLinks, be sure to check out the various topic files, as well as the new County files. (Gradually he will be picking up individual topics from numerous sites to make it easier for surfers to find what they are looking for. This approach has freed me to concentrate on gathering additional data and help files.)

Professional Help
Some have asked for recommendations to Professional Researchers. These link tells where a list may be located for NB. I do not recommend anyone in particular. Check with one or more from the list and see who most closely meets your need. (Some items to check for are: expected cost involved, time it will take to do your research, and what type of report can you expect to receive from them - i.e. photocopies, fully documented, etc. For best results, please be sure you list the sources you have already used for NB.)
Queries and Misc. Data
Please take note of (and read at least once BEFORE you make your first post) the brief instructions for this Board, under "Links and Announcements" found near the top of the Message Board. There is also few help links on the footer banner of the page as well. 
The few rules and tips are intended to help you make an entry that will ensure the best results. One of the prime directives is to write your message in a way that people will stop and read it. This usually involves using names of people or places in the subject line (Not "Help needed", "Looking for great grandpa", etc.) The use of upper and lower case letters is the way most people are used to reading. They often ignore entries that are not written in this manner.
