The Charlotte County Archives, located in St. Andrews, New Brunswick, Canada began in 1975 when a group of volunteers known as the “Friends of the Charlotte County Historical Society” was formed to preserve and organize historical documents relating to Charlotte County. Since 1982 the permanent home of the Archives has been at 123 Frederick Street in the old Charlotte County Gaol, a Provincial Heritage Site, generously provided by the Province of New Brunswick. The Archives is a non-profit organization and donations help fund daily operations and special projects.

What's on the docket

  • It's hard to believe that a whole year has rolled by, but once again it is appeal season for the Charlotte County Archives. We know that you get many, many requests for donations. But please read the appeal letter from our president and consider us when you are deciding which organizations to support. If you are a long-time supporter, we thank you and encourage you to continue with that support; if you are looking for an organization to support, we’d like to be favourably considered.

    Those of us who give our time to the Archives firmly believe that learning about our past enriches us, and that the lessons of the past provide the key to our future. If you or your ancestors have ever lived in Charlotte County you are a part of the story of our County...help us to preserve that story for the future!

    Read the appeal letter from our President here.

  • If you have research you would like to do at the Archives please bear in mind that from November to March inclusive we will be open by appointment only. 

  • Have you seen the new Spring newsletter yet? You really should take a few minutes and read it through. Our newsletter team has pulled together some great interviews (Bruce Jackson on why the Archives serves all of Charlotte county, Donna Muir on researching her husband's family's history), a profile on one of the historic houses in our summer Heritage Homes Tour and some very interesting tidbits of information. Do take a few extra minutes to follow the links in Bruce's article "From a director's chair"...you'll learn a great deal about our County and its Archives. Pour yourself a cuppa and settle in for a great read!

We have been receiving some really great feedback on our first annual Heritage Homes Tour in August! Everyone seems to have enjoyed spending the afternoon touring some of the grand old cottages and homes of St. Andrews. So we'd like you to know that we've started planning next year's tour already. We have a fabulous group of homes arranged and we've set the date! So save August 8th, 2015 for another delightful Heritage Homes Tour in St. Andrews. We'll be sending out another reminder in the early spring, but for now put a note in your planner...you won't want to miss this!
