Lunenburg County Place Names

This Index alphabetically lists given place names in Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia along with coordinates that will locate them on the grid found on the Map of the County showing all of these place names.

This Index also gives former names of communities, where known. These names come from sources such as the Ambrose F. Church & Co Map (about 1870), DesBrisay's book on The History of the County of Lunenburg (1895), the Census of 1901, and from research of Ron Barkhouse of New Ross, NS. Should you find names not included here, please e-mail me so that they can be added.

There is also an Index of Lunenburg County Places (communities and land/water features) derived from Family Names.

If you click on the highlited communities, you will get a listing of Heads of Households in that community, taken from data on the AF Church Map.

For the bolded communities, you can also link to topographical maps of the communities as they exist today. These are found on the external South Shore Genealogy Society site, so to return to this page, use your browser's BACK feature.

If you want to know their latitude/longitude coordinates, go to the Natural Resources Canada web site that lets you input any Canadian Place Name and it will give the latitude and longitude. You can also input latitude/longitude coordinates and it will give all places within 5, 10, and 20 km radii.
