Comments: Hello, Yarmouth,

At one time I had some connection to Yarmouth.  I was married to Laurence Dwight Sabean from 1975 to 1984 when he pased away from heart disease. He was the son of Dwight and Catherine Sabean(Morgan). They are buried in New Tusket in the family plot. Shirley Bradshaw was Laurence's cousin. I miss going to Nova Scotia, it is such a pretty province, and the residents are so friendly.  My girl friend and I went on a cruise from NY to Montreal in Sept. 1990 and had a chance to take a bus tour while in NS. Of course I bragged up the beauty to Margaret. She was able to go to a place she had never been before. 
We had lunch(lobster, of course) at Chester and went to Peggy's Cove and Hubbard. We were unable to continue to Yarmouth as time would not permit.
I remarried in 1993, but still miss the "East coast". 
Thank you for taking the time to read this. 
Penny Alger.

Comments: Hi Folks,

Was hoping to make it down this Christmas to get together 
for a play. I play the fiddle and piano and enjoy sitting in with my father (Ron) and his friends. Hopefully , I can make it next year. 

I have been getting into the recording scene lately and I am really enjoying it. All you folks out there should give it a try some time - capture the memories before they're gone!

I have a new website I've been making. I put a couple of my original works on it. Hope you like them.

Happy holidays....Geoff:)

Comments: re: Architectural Tour of Yarmouth
Great website.
Lots of valuable information.
One small note.
The residence you list as the home of the "Fuller Brush Man" is, to the best of my knowledge, the home of my great grandfather, J. Murray Lawson.
I recall visiting Yarmouth many times as a child and having the big blue house on the corner pointed out to me by my father...Murray.
Could I mistaken?
Yours Truly,
Dan Lawson

Comments: It is with much appreciation that I have visited your website.  I thank you for all your hard work and time that you have dedicated to this site. 
Black Afro-Canadians need to know their roots and that being black is something to be very proud off.  Black people have given much to this world and we must learn to stand tall, lift up our heads and continue to thank GOD every day for our spirituals gifts.  We are a very strong race and we must never forget who we are and what our ancesters gave up for us, as a people.
We must teach our young children to know about their history
and give back to our elders and bring back the respect to our families and our black community. 
Regardless, who we fall in love with, black, white, etc.  We must teach our children that their roots are from the Black man and the Africian culture. 
We need more Love and Support for each other.
Once again thank you. 

In Christian Love and Prayers.
God Bless All.
