Question: I had a discussion with my cousin on what Atlantic Canada was.  She told me Ontario and Quebec were included, I can not believe they you be included. What provinces are included, I understand you have ancestors from there?

 

Answer: Atlantic Canada is made up of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador.  My paternal grandmother was from Moncton, N.B.  My Lambert family hails from Cumberland Co., N.S. And my paternal grandfather's mother was born in Newfoundland.
