Comments: I have had a great deal of plaesure studying your maps.  My father was born in a place called Brooklyn back in 1920.  He is now deceased, and I thought I would just take a look around the town, as I have never been to Nova Scotia.  In fact I have never been anywhere in Canada. 

I would be grateful if you could give me information as to where I would be able to purchase a set of pictures and maps as they are shown on this wonderful web page. 

I look forward to hearinfg from you, as I am trying to collate a family history.  I am not having much luck at present and I thoought I would start with looking at the local locations. 

Many thanks once again

We have been married for 9 years and I have brought my wife to Yarmouth on 4 occations and the first time was our honeymoon and her being from Toronto fell in love with the town and the people. "what's not to love ah?" We sometimes look over this site together and start to think about all the fun times we had there in our visits. This site is great. Keep up the good work.

Comments: Hi there 

I have been doing a bit of research into the my father's life for an 80th birthday surprise for him. I came across a photo taken in the 1940s of him standing in front of Lake Milo. He was a young man training for the Fleet Air Arm as a Telegraphist Air Gunner. He made very good friends in Canada and it holds many dear memories for him.  It is nice for me to 'visit' these places too, even if it is only via the Internet! 

Many thanks

Comments: Excellent idea to feature the histories of Yarmouth's village communities. Believe Lake Annis is one of the more interesting because of the closeness to Yarmouth (18 miles); the quality of the lake (water); and the fact that the cottages for the most part front  the lake in one location so that most of the shoreline, over 90% is uninhabited. By general unwritten consent of those living on the lake, motor driven water craft are forbidden. 
The village is mainly surrounded by forest and the lake. 
There is access to sand beaches, and it is only a 15 minute drive to Port Maitland and other beaches on the Atlantic ocean. 
Many of the families have been residents for three generations and the properties are passed in succession down to each family so that there are many friendships of long standing, dating back to the early 1900s.

Cleland.  I would love to find someone that could give me some information about Cleland's Corner or my family members.  Most of my family is deceased and I would love to find out if I have any remaining family in Yarmouth. If you have any information about my family please email me. 
Thank you.

Comments: I am trying to track heritage to Mikmag indians. My granfather was Joseph John Muise, born August 26, 1897 he served in the Canadian army during WW1, his wife was Teresa (Robinson) they had two sons Donald and Allen. My great-grandfather was John Muise, who I understand was a fisherman and drowned at sea, I beleive it to be the sinking of the Orinoco in 1909. He was married to Sadie Muise(White?). I understand the name Mius, Meuse and Muise were only given to those of the Mikmac indian branch. This goes back to Philippe II Mius D'Entremont, born 1660 (who had two Mikmac indian wives (both named Marie). I am finding it very difficult to trace from this point. Any and all help would be greately appreciated. Thank You, Jim Muise

     Hello to old friends in Yarmouth! 
            I was a student at Yarmouth Memorial High School 
in 1957 and graduated 4 years later.  Our family came to Yarmouth from Boston and purchased a farm in South Chegoggin.  We had come for summer vacations before that to visit my mother's relatives (Nickersons in Overton) and settled in Yarmouth when my father had a severe stroke. 
              I would love to hear from anyone who went to Yarmouth High at that time or any relatives who might remember Frances (Nickerson) and Bob Wallace. 
               I am now living in Toronto and hope to get back to Nova Scotia this summer.    Hope someone picks this up and we can correspond.    Linda

My father visited the area some thirty years ago and thought that I might like to make the same trip someday.  Would just like to learn more about the family time spent in the area.  Any one having information on the Crosby families you were once in the area or some that may still be, I would sure be interested in finding that.  Great site, thanks.
