Guysborough County Genealogy

This week Barry Potter sent a link to his relatively new website. It’s called Guysborough County Genealogy.

The opening page of the site states: Guysborough County is located on the northeast corner of mainland Nova Scotia, Canada.  Border on the northeast by Canso Strait and Chedabucto Bay, on the southeast by the Atlantic Ocean, on the southwest by Halifax County and on the northwest by Antigonish and Pictou Counties.  The county as it is today was established in 1836. From 1759-1784 it was part of Halifax County.

The site includes the following topics:

Links: Informative links to the Internet and Facebook that will help your genealogy research.

References: Information on genealogy-related books, papers, databases, census records and so forth.

Places: This section includes a gazetteer of the county and images of old maps. The gazetteer lists all the known communities, when they were established and their GPS. Potter provides tidbits of information on each of them. Wonderful old photos are scattered throughout, enhancing the visit.

Help: This contains a section on free courses and presentations to help you in your genealogical journey.

Contact: If you wish to contact Potter, you can do so here. If you have information to share, he’ll be happy to hear from you.
