I'm looking for info on the parents of two people- 

John Henry Pierce B: 1825 in Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia; d: 1/17/1918 in Nictaux, NS. He was married to Naomi Grant B: 1830, Nova Scotia. They were married 7/5/1856 in NS. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

They might not have arrived in NB. They might have gone through Halifax, Quebec, New York or one of the Pennsylvania ports.

Al, I have and they have wonderful information. I have Anglican records for births, baptisms, mairages and deaths, from most of the eleven children. I know Mary Jane died while living with her daughter in Nortwest St. John NB, I have pictures of their grave stone which also has two of the children buried with them. I have copies of John Bells land grants etc. I just cannot find out when he arrived. I have searched at least a couple hundred ship manifests from Ireland and arrivals at NB Canada. Its not for lack of trying... Thanks for your suggestions. That is why I use forums. My 23 and me DNA test only told me so much. Daniel

Hello everyone, my name is Linda Christensen, from Preston, CT, USA.  I am taking a Social Media class and it was suggested that we join some of the sites that we are interested in.   I am working through the Lefrancois line -  my grandfather was from St. Zenon, Ontario and we also follow my grandmother, Agnes Boisvert.  Can't wait to see what I can find.

I could use some help locating census info for 1851 on John and Nancy (Parks) Livingston(e). They had one son, Freeman b. 1844 and possibly another, David b. 1854. I have been able to locate Freeman from 1861 on. But no info on his parents. I believe they may have been living in Prince Edward Co. area of Ontario.. Any additional info or leads for this couple would be welcome.
