  1. Hi Dale,
    Burton S. Moore was my great grandfather.
    Do you know how I can view his fonds held by the Library and Archives Canada?
    I have requested copies but there appears to be copyright issues.
    Please let me know if you could assist.
    Thank you.

    • Hi Roger – thanks for reaching out. I run the website, and learned about Burton S. Moore when I worked at the National Archives of Canada, (now Library & Archives of Canada). My manager at the time, the late Bill O’Farrell Jr., was working closely with David Folster on a chapter for his book; Discovering the Movies in New Brunswick. I have been planning to do a review of the book and post it here. I will also heed your advice and reach out to the New Brunswick Museum and look into what I might be able share from them here on the website.
