 Our member's web site started in 2003 and consists of many thousands of pages of  material transcribed from original documents and other types of material useful to researchers. This site has the largest collection of Cape Breton genealogy information available anywhere. Our collection is large and varied, please take the time necessary to become familiar with the site. Be sure to check the HOW TO NAVIGATE SITE section below on this page.

 Our records include an ever increasing collection of Cape Breton related material. No site can have every record for an area, however, our records are vast and increase each month. We have the following types of records - books, cemetery records, census records, monthly magazine the Ezine, family trees, historical records, land grants, maps, helpful links to other sites, military records, newspaper items, obits, parish records, school records and more.

  We think of our website as a digital Cape Breton genealogy research library/museum.  We assemble Cape Breton genealogy research material, from many sources, in one easy to access site so our members can do their research from the comfort of their homes.

You must be a member of the CBGHA to view the records on this site. Membership is only $25.00 per year for unlimited access to the website material and you may join at any time of year and get access for a full year.
