Additional Campobello Vital Records Web Links

Over the past couple of weeks I have come across some web pages that have information pertaining to Campobello Residents. You may find these of use if you have not used them already! If you find any other vital record links pertaining to Campobello residents I would be happy to add them here.

Social Security Death Index. As mentioned above a number of people from Campobello would later become residents in the USA. I was able to find a few deaths using this link. HOWEVER, in a most cases if the person was born in Canada (in this case Campobello), the place of birth is not indicated. I was able to confirm they were from Campobello as the name and date of birth I had was a match to the SSDI information.(If you click on the link below to the Latter Day Saints Page you will get to view SSDI information for "free").

Nova Scotia Historical Vital Statistics. A number of Campobello families have connections to Nova Scotia. In March 2007 Nova Scotia released on line records containing over 1 million names. You will find that the site is fully searchable by name or surname. (I wish you could search by location as well. ie: Campobello). Every name is linked to its original record. The records include:

Births 1864-1877 Marriages 1864-1930 Deaths 1864-1877 and 1908-1955 Added April 2007

New Brunswick Archives Vital Records The NB Archives has placed a large number of records on line, including Births 1801-1912, Marriages 1810-1958, Deaths 1815-1957. Also Saint John Burial Permits can be searched by county of birth. I have used this option as well and have found a number of Charlotte Co., residents including some from Campobello. Archives updated adding 2006 Charlotte County Guide. This "Guide" will show you what records you can borrow from the archives on "inter library loan". 1914 Births added in June/July 2009

New Brunswick Provinical Archives added "Daniel Johnson's Vital Statistics from NB Papers" to its on line database in October 2006. The information is searchable by location as well as "surname" it is a HUGE benefit to Campobello researchers. I have searched by "Wilson's Beach", "Welshpool" "Welchpool" and have received HOURS worth of information that I have been reading. The link below will take you to the main page ... ENJOY!

The database announcement was as follows: Daniel F. Johnson’s New Brunswick Newspaper Vital Statistics. The Database is based on over twenty-three years of work by Daniel Johnson and the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick is honoured to present it on their web site as a tribute to Danny and a resource to researchers.

The Database contains 298,097 transcriptions and has a name index of 640,984 records. The information was gathered from 75 New Brunswick newspapers commencing January 29, 1784 through December 31, 1896, a period which predates official registration of births, deaths and marriages or comprehensive compliance with it. An obvious treasure trove for genealogists with details on wedding celebrations and even lodge and union affiliations of deceased persons, the Database has information on such topics as ethnicity, accidents, violent deaths, graduates returning from out of province education, and details of illnesses. Although largely used in its original published format for biographical and genealogical research, this presentation in a searchable version will unlock access to these and other topics while serving its original audience and expanding the potential audience tremendously.

Maine State Vital Records The Maine State Archives has put on a large number of records including Maine Marriages 1892-1966 (which can be searched by Bride and Groom's places of Residence), Maine Deaths 1960-1996, and Miscellaneous Town records. The Marriage records contains MANY Campobello Residents. If you find a former Campobello resident (male or female) in the death records, could you please let me know.

Latter Day Saints Website This site contains information from all over the world, including there IGI (International Genealogical Index), SSDI, Census Records, Ancesteral Resource Files and Pedigree Files. You can't necessarily search for "Campobello", but you can search by individual names in a particular country and province. If you search just by surname you must also search for all of Canada and not just the province of New Brunswick. This method will bring up all records they have with that name and will indicate in which province the person was from.

NB Automated Genealogy This site is a great resource for searching a number of NB Genealogical records including those at the NB archives as well as Provincial Census records.

Baptisms, Births & Deaths

Viital Statistics from the Saint Croix Courier Includes Births & Deaths.

Tom Moffatt, former editor of the courier sent this comment. Please consider it when using these records:

I "reader beware" note on the Courier births and deaths in the "Journey Through Time". - I was editor of the St. Croix Courier at the time, and
would like to make sure everyone realizes that only a random selection of births, marriages and deaths was included, due to space constraints.

(Note that there are full indexes at the St. Croix Public Library.(

The same (partial coverage) is even more true in the earlier segments of that "Journey through time" publication.

Incidentally, one section of "Journey through time" that is both fascinating, and the only one that has "all coverage that was in the St. Croix Courier", is the listing of damage due to the Saxby Gale in 1869. However, that did not cover Campobello - I assume there was no reporting from there. But it does cover all the lists of "barns blown down, houses blown sideways off foundations," etc. etc. for whatever areas were covered,
on both sides of the border.
