The Cape Breton Genealogy & Historical Association posts a wide variety of material of interest to anyone interested in Cape Breton genealogy and history. With very few exceptions, this material is gathered by the volunteer members of the CBGHA. We are confident that all the material submitted represents many hours of diligent work and is high quality research. Much of the material was copied from original sources and is a great asset to researchers. The volume of material posted to the CBGHA site makes it impossible to verify all the material that is submitted.
We are confident that the material on the CBGHA site is of excellent quality and was prepared with all reasonable care but human error is a possibility. We suggest that the above statement be considered when doing your research and if you disagree with any of the material found on our website you should review the original documents.
