The Island Register

The Island Register demonstrates the advantage of having roots in a geographically isolated region. The website features "over 874 P.E.I. lineages, and 4500+ documents online," all related to the genealogical history of Prince Edward Island. There are maps, diaries, church and census records, ships databases, and "just for fun," the 1893 budget for the province. The wills database alone holds 417 transcribed records. The Register is always my first stop when researching a P.E.I. family.
