MPN Records

MPN will be donating our archival records to the Provincial Archives (PANB) where they will be permanently preserved and available for Public Research.

PANB collects and preserves documents of the people, institutions and government of New Brunswick and makes them available for public research.

Family historians, academics, school classes, specialists and other interested individuals regularly use its documentary holdings.

 

  The Committee will be organizing documents to tell the MPN story created over the last 15 years for donation to the Provincial Archives. These include:
  • articles of incorporation
  • committee minutes
  • financial documents
  • sound and moving images
  • photographs
  • press releases
  • newspaper clippings
 If anyone has copies of these records that will help tell the MPN story, please consider donating them. Harold will gladly pick them up. His email is haroldholland@rogers.com
