This fonds consists of an exercise book belonging to John McEachern, a diary of the McEachern family for the period 1839 to 1901, and a McEachern genealogy written by John McEachern in 1866. The diary, which was started by John McEachern and continued by his sons Lauchlin and Dougald after his death, contains daily accounts of weather and life on the farm. The end of the diary also includes a section entitled "Fragments of Family History" (1850) written by John outlining his family's Scottish roots and their emigration to Prince Edward Island. This appears to have been the predecessor to his more detailed McEachern genealogy.
