SWEET family


of New Brunswick, Canada




Welcome to my homepage. My name is Bob Sweet and I live in Island View, a community adjacent to Fredericton the capital of New Brunswick, Canada.

My pages contain information about the SWEET family in New Brunswick and about other families related through marriage. I have been researching my family history since 1985. The information on these pages represents but a small portion of my collection. I encourage your inquiries about my research.

If your are researching the SWEET name, you should subscribe to the discussion group mail list for the name. Instructions on how to subscribe can be found at General Surname Sites. You might also want to check out the GenForum facility. There you will find many of my surname interests including Bannister, Daley, Daly, Downey, Dryden, Gladstone, Harkins, Hopper, Lahey, Leeman, Melanson, Power and White.

If you have a homepage and you have SWEETs or any of the other surnames found here, please drop me a line and I will provide a link to it from my pages.

I used to be the site coordinator for the NBGenWeb project's Albert County, New Brunswick site. Check it out!
