Prince Edward County Genealogies

Why list County genealogies on our Friends of Sandbanks site? I have been asked that question a number of times, and the simple answer is to better understand the human activities that shaped this area since 1785. As an avid genealogist, and professional photographer, I find that many of what appear to be unrelated endeavours coalesce after more detailed research.

Not only do compiled genealogies such as these shown here help link the various families for any interested researcher, they also provide a useful tool in making identification of old photographs. So often a photo may only have the identification of "Auntie Annie Reid", or even less. If you have a collection of images, then you may be able to sleuth other family members from the remaining photographs, based on a location or name link.

One of my own personal projects is the digitizing of extant county images. I am happy to provide that service on location, at no charge for anyone with a collection of old photographs, glass plates and negatives.

Annually, I provide the Prince Edward County Archives with copies of all digitized images, with as much identification that I can find.

Having these compiled "bare bones" genealogies are very useful for any serious researcher.

I welcome corrections, additions, comments, histories, or old stories.

These genealogies are provided "as-is". While I have over thirty years in genealogy research under my belt, particularly in Scotland, there is no guarantee of accuracy. Caveat emptor!

Please contact me if you have images to digitize, or information to add!

These genealogies are updated regularly. Check back again if you don't yet see your family name listed.
