Miramichi Area Research Centres

Northumberland County is known as one of the most Irish areas of the Province. the largest community in the county, Miramichi City, was formed in 1995 through the forced amalgamation of two rival towns, Newcastle and Chatham, and several smaller communities including Douglatown, Loggieville, and Nelson. All of these communities were rich in Irish heritage and in the centre of it all was always St. Michael’s Church.

Over the years St. Michael’s accumulated such large quantities of historic documents pertaining to the area, the people who settled there, and their subesquent descendents, that the st. Michael’s Genealogy and Research Centre was founded.
