Welcome to the Sheet Harbour Halifax County Gen Web site. Initially this site contains mainly information on the Catholic heritage in Sheet Harbour and nearby communities. Hopefully together we can broaden it to include the original Mi'kmaq people, the English, Scots, Irish, Germans  and others who have made this beautiful area their home throughout the centuries.
