Question: Can you advise me how I can search the earliest census for all of New Brunswick from home?  I am unable to get into NEHGS anymore because of my health.


Answer:  The earliest census with coverage for New Brunswick is the 1851 Census.  This census can be searched for New Brunswick online for free at

This census has the added advantage to tell you when an individual arrived in the Province.  My ancestor who arrived in 1816 from Ireland, and this clue helped match him with his Crown Land Grant.
