Welcome to the Prospect Genealogical Website. The village of Prospect, located some 22 kilometres outside of Halifax on the western shore of the Chebucto Peninsula was founded by Irish and English fishermen in the 1750s. For the past 250 years the families who settled here have carved out a living amongst the rocky shores and continue to do so today. This website is dedicated to them and we are happy to say we are celebrating our seventh anniversary. Since 1999 we have had well over 100,000 visitors, who have used the information on this website in their genealogical hunt.
