If you look on familysearch.org you will find on 1871 census

George Christopher Curry 23
Mary Amanada 21
Anna Elmira 3
James MacLean 1

You will find on this site indexed records for Nova Scotia...
births. 1702-1896, 1861 census. marriages 1711-1909

Best wishes in your research.

A search at www.NovaScotiaGenealogy.com finds 2 James McLean births and a marriage that may or may not be your family.

You may also have some luck at the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick site - check the Vital Stats at http://archives.gnb.ca/APPS/GovRecs/VISSE/Default.aspx?culture=en-CA

and the Daniel Johnson newspaper archives.

Best of luck in your search.

Thanks so much! I have been using the PEI Provincial Archives for my Mom's family, but hadn't stumbled across the other provinces yet.

I will check the familysearch.org dite too - I haven't had a lot of success with the 1871 census to date. It would be nice if they were all as well done as the 1881 version!

Thanks again!

Hello,

I am James Mclean Currie's (Maclean Curry) great granddaughter. I guess that would make us second cousins!
I have a photo of him sitting in his racing sulky with one of his trotting horses outside the farmhouse in Nova Scotia.

Regards
Mary D.

Mary,

I sent you a private message, thanks so much for your response. I forgot to ask which of James I children are you descended from?

Regards,
Pam
