                      All Historical Registry Documents Now Available !
                Service New Brunswick is pleased to announce the scanning of the Registry Book records for
    MAJOR       Westmorland County has been completed. This exciting milestone marks the completion of the
IMPROVEMENTS    Historical Documents Scanning Project for the province and historical registry documents for
                ALL 15 counties in the province of New Brunswick are now available in PLANET.
                Converting over 200 years worth of Historical Documents to a digital format was a massive un-
    ONLINE      dertaking and required the effort and cooperation of both Land Registry staff and clients across
LAND REGISTRY   the province. Each image passed a quality control and validation process prior to being loaded
                to the PLANET system. Further, all documents have been archived to new digital microfilm and
                optical media to ensure multiple backup formats.

                Service New Brunswick would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our Land Registry cli-
                ents for your patience, understanding and cooperation throughout this initiative and we hope
                you enjoy the ease of accessing this treasure trove of historical online information in the future.

                PLEASE NOTE: All Registry Document books scanned as part of this project have been placed
                in boxes and stored based on a Retention Schedule as agreed to by SNB and the Provincial

                to 1930 +-) and associated Grantor/Grantee Indices will be moved to the Provincial Archives.
