In Response To: Wheary family request ()
Okay, Pam, Fredericton, New Brunswick, eh? Well, lemme see what I can find for you.
The New Brunswick Provincial Archives has a pretty good website (http://archives.gnb.ca/) and one of the items that might interest you is their online directory of newspapers. I found seven papers in the Fredericton area, and if you click on each title, it tells you the publication dates, frequency of publication, and location of original documents.
Many of the Fredericton newspapers reside at the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton Library (http://www.lib.unb.ca/), and a quick glance of their website seems to indicate that they do NOT do ILLs to non-students, however, I suggest you email their librarian to clarify this.
I noticed on Canadiana.org a list of lending libraries, which includes several in Fredericton:
* New Brunswick Legislative Library, Fredericton
* New Brunswick Museum, Library & Archives Department, Saint John
* Provincial Archives of New Brunswick, Fredericton
* University of New Brunswick, Harriet Irving Library, Fredericton
You might want to contact them directly to see what resources they have for you. The York Regional Library in Fredericton would also be a resource I'd check (http://www.gnb.ca/0003/regions/fredericton-e.asp).
Finally, there's always the New Brunswick Genealogical Society (http://www.nbgs.ca/). They may be able to offer you some research assistance if you're unable to travel to New Brunswick.
I hope this has helped, my dear, but if not, please let me know. Good luck in your search.
