Notes on Sources

Genealogists working on Prince Edward Island families have the possibity of doing well-researched work without having to go to many different locations. The Prince Edward Island Museum and Heritage Foundation (2 Kent St., Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, C1A 1M6) and the Prince Edward Island Genealogical Society have done excellent work in recording, transcribing and indexing genealogically significant records for the Island. A consultation with the master nominal index of these records, kept by the Genealogical Society on 3x5 cards and housed at the Provincial Archives and also available for sale on 16 mm. microfilm, is the key to many estant census records, cemetery transcriptions, parish registers, newspaper obituaries, published local histories and more. It is an outstanding genealogically-organized index, showing what can be done by a genealogical society with dedicated staff and volunteers working on a manageable project -- Prince Edward Island being geographically limited without an overwhelmingly large or highly transient population.

As a result of this index and the records to which they refer, this volume has the benefit of the York Methodist Church baptismal, marriage and death records, parish records of the Presbyterian churches at West Covehead and Cornwall, and the Anglican churches of Charlottetown, tombstone transcriptions for all the cemeteries in Lot 34 and nearby, provincial and federal census schedules for the 1841, 1861, 1871 and 1881 enumerations, wills and estates for all persons surnamed Hardy (at the Public Archives of Prince Edward Island, P.O. Box 1000, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, C1A 7M4), newspaper accounts from nineteenth century Island journals in which the name Hardy was mentioned, and other sources mentioned in the text.

I also carried on extensive correspondence during the late 1970s with living members of the family; their recollections and the genealogical data they were kind enough to send me was invaluable and has been included. Most of the information about persons born in the twentieth century comes from that source, as does the data on descendants of families who emigrated from the Island. For my part, all of the original documentation that I was able to obtain from sources other than the Heritage Foundation, the Genealogical Society and Prince Edward Island provincial government records I have deposited with the Genealogical Society for inclusion in their files. Subsequent researchers or family members, therefore, will be able to locate the sources and evidence for statements made in this book. For that reason, I have not burdened the reader with extensive references to sources in the text, nor have I used footnotes. While the information in this book can only be as accurate as the sources on which it was based, those sources, including my correspondence with family members, can be located at and through the Prince Edward Island Genealogical Society.

I encourage any reader who has information that will correct or add to this genealogy to submit their corrections and/or additions to the Prince Edward Island Genealogical Society (P.O. Box 2744, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island C1A 8C4), so that their records on the Hardy families of Little York can be as complete as possible, and preserved for the benefit of our descendants.
