Comments: Hi Everyone,
I have been working on my family tree  for many years & am getting nowhere by
conventional methods.My ancesters said  only that they were from Nova Scotia,
they  did not say where "in" Nova Scotia. they were there in the 1700 & 1800& migrated
to Boston & Gloucester, Mass. 1800 & 1900. I'm trying to post a message in each of
your  lovely counties in hopes some one  will read this & get in touch with me with
knowledge of the following surnames:


 Some day when I can find my ancesters I am going to visit all of
your beautiful Nova Scotia. Thank you for providing a place to
post this message.

Comments: After growing up in yarmouth, I enjoy visiting family and friends
in the area. It was nice to see this site , and surprised to see that
it included South Ohio. With our communities worried about oour
 biggest industries being taken away , maybe some of the people looking
at this will realize that there are alot of people in our fishing
communities that are affected by the recent decisions being made by the
supreme court of Canada. Tourism may be the only thing left in our beautiful
part of the world.

My late Tante Isabelle who died this year lived in Bellville along with her husband Wifred for a good many years. They had lived in Bellville, Ontario before returning to Nova Scotia. There house was located on a hill overlooking a lake. It was a very old house but I always enjoyed visiting when I could. Her many grandchildren and great grandchildren visited her often during the summer months. I have been doing research into my acadian roots and am interested in knowing more about other acadian communities. Thanks for listening Fran Dobson

Comments: After searching my genealogy for three years and finding my ancestors all the way back to two passengers on the Mayflower,I found that the Drinkwaters settled on Cousins Island,Yarmouth,Me.They raised 9 sons and 2 daughters and the brothers all became ship captains and later became ship builders right there in Yarmouth.Once they all sailed into Boston Harbor the same day and the commander of the fort thought something was suspicious where they all had the same name so he sent a messenger into Boston to check.After it was confirmed he invited them out to the fort for dinner.
