The Buchanans in "The Belfast Book"

The "Belfast Book" was brought into the Heritage Foundation in early July 1976 by Ernest MacLeod of Flat River and is the property of Mrs. R.A. MacKenzie. The book or "diary" was kept by Rev. Mr. Sinclair and are his notes on the Belfast Congregation in 1889.

The book was first transcribed and updated by Doug MacLeod, and then converted to HTML and reformatted by Craig Buchanan. Items in italics are Doug's additions. Various markings have been added to aid in readability. The original (available on microfilm) should be consulted for accuracy.

NOTE: The family numbers shown are incorrect. There are other small errors. Hopefully this document will be "cleaned and polished" before too long. I don't have access to the original document so I cannot fix the problems myself.
