Location: Belfast Northern Ireland
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

Name: Meryl Danby
Location: Oxford United Kingdom
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!

Location: Upper Wedgeport

captured on camera. I am a former resident of yarmouth, and I hope
to someday return with my husband and new son to show them all that Yarmouth
has to offer.

which needs to attract a walmart, winners store, bigger canada day celebrations
and extend its waterfront boardwalk to include the whole harbour - similar
to halifax. see you @ seafest where you have the nicest fireworks

Comments: Family properties in Lake Annis Village:
Name: John Goudey
Location: Yarmouth, N.S.
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.
Name: Mary Parrish
Location: Byron, Georgia, USA
Comments: My great grandmother was from Cleland's Corner, Yarmouth.
Her father (my great-great grandfather) was the postmaster at one time.
Her name was Lena Maude Cleland and his name was James H. 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.

Name: Bill Comeau
Location: Plaistow, NH
Name: Jim Muise
Location: Rhode Island
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,
