Search Lovell's 1871 Directory
Extractions by Lisa D. Petersen, Search Script by Rick Hagen
John Lovell in Montreal published a city directory for towns in Ontario,
Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island,
which contains names of professional and business men and other inhabitants,
corrected to January 1871. I have extracted all names from the 44 towns
in Colchester County, and have made them searchable by name or town. Most
of the names in the directory are men, but some women (school teachers,
widows) are listed. Approximate population of the towns was given in the
directory, and I include the figure next to the town name. The directory,
called Canadian Dominion Directory for 1871, is available on microfiche at
your local LDS Family History Center.
