Government of New Brunswick


New Brunswick public libraries hold a wealth of genealogical and historical resources for all levels of research.


The service is free and available for everyone. A New Brunswick public library card is required to borrow items. Some resources may only be available for use in the library.


Explore topics such as genealogy and family history in the New Brunswick public libraries online catalogue to find helpful resources to explore your roots. Many government documents, special collections (both published and unpublished) and primary resources are available in reference archives for in-library use only.

Library staff can help in person with complex questions about your genealogy and family history research. Visit or contact a public library today to get started!
