For Genealogists

family tree

There is quite a bit of Information for genealogists on this site - it is best accessed using the search feature above.  Note that I have almost zero additional information - it is all on the web site.  If you contact me, I will be polite but I don’t have any additional information. The best additional source of info for researchers is at the Cobourg Library where they have a local history room stocked with many historical books and documents. They do have some photos on-line but not much more - you need to visit.

A good source of information is the Northumberland County Archives. Contact the archivist Emily Cartlidge by email here or County Web site here.

The first Mayor, Ebenezer Perry, was elected in 1837.  The current Mayor is Gil Brocanier.  The list includes all those in between with photos of some but most have no publicly available photo.
