Trace the roots of your ancestors and explore your family's history in New Brunswick's St. John River Valley. Your investigation into the past begins with a genealogy research session at the L.P. Fisher Public Library, one of the many prized heritage buildings in Woodstock, New Brunswick’s first incorporated town. You work backwards from modern times, searching books and records under the watchful eye of a professional genealogist who provides insider tips and a helping hand. Then take a self-guided walking tour of downtown Woodstock to explore Connell House, Carleton County Courthouse and other historic landmarks you’ve read about in your research material. Perhaps your search will even lead you to a local cemetery? Start to finish, you are immersed in a sense of the past, set on discovering something about your roots and yourself.
