The Greens of New Brunswick

About the Family Tree

This presentation of the Greens' family tree is a bit uneven, just like the tree in the picture you just clicked on to get here. The family tree will also continue to grow as new twigs or branches are born, and as more photos and documents are added for existing branches. The research for this project was begun by Linda Ann Gomes (Green) for her own satisfaction. She is the one refered to as "I" in all the "research" pages.

Some years after her initial effort, her cousin, R. Arthur Green, having retired, decided a computerized version of the Family Tree would be nice and would be "fun" to create. It is presented in the form of a World Wide Web site with the idea that it could be distributed on a CD. This work began in October 1997.

The difficult research done by Linda produced considerable data, in addition to that, Arthur used photos and text from various places:

Considerable help was given Arthur by his son Dr. Stephen J. Green, who actually ran the Tree as a WWW site from his computer at Macquarrie University in Sydney Australia for almost a year.

In November of 1998, Linda again came through with a nearly complete family tree for the Campbell family which has been incorporated. In April 1999, Donald M. Green (Jr) "found" the Campbells that had moved to Alberta (his Grandmother Green's brothers).

In 2007 Arthur began to seriously use the web for research and joined Ancestry.com (a paid subscription site). Ancestry.com has an enormous data base that was used to fill in a lot of holes in our data and to verify the data we already had. In cases were the census data was used, Arthur used the acutal images of the census pages to collect the data. Any obvious errors that the census taker made are corrected in the data presented here.

The free web sites provided by the New Brunswick goverment and the Maine State government:

Were used extensively for birth, marriage, death and burial records.

The free Automated Genealogy sites for Canada's 1901 and 1911 census data:

Were used wherever possible. Again, the views of the actual census pages were used when there was any doubt about the transcriptions and obvious errors were corrected.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints data base was also extensively used for their "Ancestral File" entries and especially for the 1881 Census of Canada.

The various "GenWeb" sites and the "Yahoo Search Engine" were consulted many times.
