Online Database for PEI Ancestor Search

I have spent a great couple of hours on this website while I have been working on a family history of one of the early families to settle in PEI after emigrating from Scotland as part of Lord Selkirk's Settlers.  I have been able to find census information as well as descriptions of the lands that were farmed by the family. The census records are for 1841, 1881, 1891 and 1901. Also online is a baptismal database which can be searched by surname, the names of the parents, or of either parent. It has proven to be a wealth of information for me and I hope it will be for you as well as you search for your PEI ancestors.
