Our member's web site started in 2003 and consists of over 600,000 pages of material transcribed from original documents and other types of material useful to researchers; over 25 GB of information related to Cape Breton. 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. Below you can find - A SAMPLE OF SOME OF THE MATERIAL AVAILABLE WITH MEMBERSHIP showing some of the material that is found on the website in the members area.
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. 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. The samples below will give some idea of the material available on the website but there is so much more.
New members are welcome!
