A Celebration of 200 years of Family History in New Brunswick

My ancestors have lived in the same house that was built when we first arrived in Bayside, New Brunswick some 200 years ago. This album is a chronicle of six generations in this rural community. The first half is historical fiction as I explore Bayside’s early days, while the second half brings us back to the present. Enjoy the journey!
