My Summer Genealogy Project

This summer I’m heading off to the Maritimes to continue to search for my long lost ancestors. I plan on visiting a few family Churches that I’ve visited before: Smithtown Baptist Church NB, St. Paul’s Church, Lakeside NB… as well as many new Churches (if I can find them), including:  New Tusket United Baptist Church NS, the Gavelton Meeting House NS, and what was once the United Baptist Church of Weaver Settlement, NS (no longer standing).

I’m particularily on the hunt for the cemetery stones of R. Henry Barr, Bethelda Hannah Gavel Barr, William Riley Barr, Jacob H. Gavel, Sarah Esther Hurlburt Gavel, John Gavel, Phoebe Hatfield Gavel, John A. Mullen & Mary Grant Mullen.

I will return to the blog in August hopefully full of wild and wonderful tales of our genealogical adventure… and, I’m hoping, a few new pictures of the resting places of my ancestors.

Happy summer, one and all!
