Just go to:
http://archives.gnb.ca/APPS/GovRecs/VISSE/?culture=en-CA
and type in 'Fraser' and 'Harry'. Also choose Charlotte Co. This will give several birth records of his children, a marriage record and a registration of death. At the top-left of these images is a 'download'. It should download the images to your desktop. (Make sure you know where they are going.)

If you open an image, you can click on 'file', then 'save as' which will allow you to rename the image, save it as JPEG or PDF or other format if you like. Depending on your computer there should be a means of altering size, features (such as brightness and contrast) and transferring a copy of the image to compositions. Alternatively you can click on 'file' and 'print' and print out your own copies.

I have attached the death registration as an example. The web site for the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick begins at:
http://archives.gnb.ca/Archives/Default.aspx?culture=en-CA
It is replete with fascinating and highly useful databases and is one of the best archival sites I have seen. It takes some getting used to to navigate, but if you are doing any Genealogy in NB it is essential. The County Guides will tell you what is on microfilm. The 'Place Names of New Brunswick' will lead to maps of counties showing parishes and to cadastral maps that can be downloaded showing the first people to live on certain lots.
