Book-on-CD Edition

A History of Barrington Township and Vicinity - Shelburne County, Nova Scotia 1604 - 1870 was originally published by Edwin Crowell in 1923. The book has stood the test of time, still being an essential resource that researchers look to when investigating their Barrington Township roots.

The original book is reproduced here in its complete form, with one very important addition.

The original book is brimming with references to specific individuals and their genealogies, however it offered an inadequate index. This new edition includes a new 176 page index compiled by Richard Nickerson. The new index is divided into six sections, dealing with Personal Names; Place Names; Vessels; Subjects; Literary Allusions; Index to Sources
