Below is a transcription I did of marriages from the Old Perlican parish
records at PANL for the Benson & Snelgrove families. I also recorded a few
others I knew people were researching like Cooper. If you have any ties to
these towns you might be interested in reviewing this, because there are
many family names represented as having married into these families, or
listed as witnesses. If anyone would like to have the word processing
document, or wants to post it on their website, I would be happy to provide
a copy...
