Global Search of Entire Database – B-U-T Surnames Only … so far
To reduce “lag time” when searching, the Names Index Database has been divided into several discrete lists displayed on different pages. When you are ready to search for a specific individual, click on a link below to access the list of your choice.
CEM – SELECTED CEMETERIES in PEC, HASTINGS, NORTHUMBERLAND
DIR – PEC “SURNAME” DIRECTORY (1865)
GEN – COLLECTED GENEALOGIES and FAMILY HISTORIES
HIS – PUBLICATIONS of HISTORICAL VALUE
LIS – BIRTHS, BAPTISMS, MARRIAGES, DEATHS
REC – PEC FUNERAL CARDS
You may search a list by last name and first name and use a “wildcard” to help your search. The format is “LAST NAME“-“COMMA“-“FIRST NAME/INITIAL” as shown in the example below. The per cent symbol % is the wildcard and can be substituted for any character(s) in a name.
Example: Dorland, Peter or Dorland, P% or Dorl%, Peter
