New Brunswick is one of the three provinces collectively known as the “Maritimes.” Connected to Nova Scotia via the narrow Chignecto Isthmus and separated from Prince Edward Island by the Northumberland Strait, New Brunswick forms the crucial land link connecting this region to continental North America. It is bordered to the north by Quebec and to the west by the US state of Maine. In 1784, the British partitioned Nova Scotia at the Chignecto Isthmus, naming the western and northern portion New Brunswick after the German duchy of Brunswick-Lunenburg. Today, New Brunswick stands as Canada’s only officially bilingual province.

  1. I am seeking history of the New Brunswick Southern Railway at the beginning of the 20th century. I know of one image of a NBS wooden flat car built by Rhodes Curry & Co @1900-1905 and would like to know more of the history of the NB Southern Ry of that time period.
    Appreciate any information on this rail line you can provide.

  2. Fredericton born and now I am 75. So you can imagine how much I am looking forward to viewing,
    “the good old days”.
    With regards,

  3. Hello New Brunswick, hello Clair (former village) area,
    – Who knows where in NB following RCAF airman is mentioned + honored, via a local War Memorial (but likely not in his home village ever, Clair (on the St. John River): it’s about F/Sgt. (Pilot) Benoit Albert Levasseur, born on Sat. 9th Nov. 1918, son of Oscar Levasseur (1888-1969) and of Délina Cyr (their family grave is in the Saint Francois d’Assise Churchyard). He is Missing In Action (MIA) overseas, over the coastal waters of Friesland / the Netherlands, in NW Europe – likely off Vlieland island – since a mine-laying mission, on 18/19th Febr. 1943, as the ‘skipper’ of No.419 ‘Moose’ Squadron HP Halifax Mk.II bomber DT639. Please, if known more, give us a reply. Best regards, Willem de Jong, Friesland / NL (volunteer researcher).
