Comments: I will be visiting my daughter at Dalhousie in Halifax in
mid-April, and as she is a student in costume studies, I would like to
take her down to see the excellent exhibits at the Yarmouth Museum. Would
it be rude if I asked if I was likely to run into fog? Or, perhaps, what
parts of the day of more fog-free? Love Yarmouth.

Comments: Hello! Just thought I'd let you know the pics of your shark have reached Alberta, though now claiming the shark was caught off Port Alberni, BC. I check out Snopes and the article about the "Dawn Raider" catching a Great White while trolling for dogfish is the same but now the location is a mishmash of several places. The final tag on the email I received reads:
"Quite a catch near Port Alberni. DON'T GO SWIMMING IN BARKLEY SOUND - PORT ALBION, UCLUELET, BC."
I guess BC was jealous!
Comments: Just arrived today - anxious to have a look at yarmouth villages
- and all the other site. Still smiling from our visit to Nova Scotia last
fall. Wonderful country, wonderful people. We took home great, happy memories.
Comments: Dear Staff,
I think you done a excellent job on the website and may God be
with you at all time! And good luck on your future!

Comments: Just finished reading the history of Melbourne. Found it very
interesting since i grew up in that small village. Spent many days during
the summer at Cooks beach and picked irish moss at the Mill Creek. I moved
to Ontario in 1969. Still visit my brothers in Yarmouth ever couple years.
Always look forward to going back where i grew up. This is a great web
site. Keep up the good work.
Name: Joshua ( George E ) Gavel
Location: Victoria BC
Comments: I'd like to know more about Gavelton and how it got it's name. As a decendant of the Gavel clan, I'm always curious to know more about the family that I was removed from as an infant. I am the grandson of John and Eva(n.Amero) Gavel, and the son of their youngest daughter Margaret. Should anybody reading this note happen to know of my family, I'd realy like to hear from them; especially if we are related! The family is in/grew up around Centerville/ Marshaltown, on the Digby Neck. Margaret and her siblings were removed from their home as children and she, living in British Columbia, has had only sporadic contact the others over the last fifty years. She and I are not in contact. I'd realy like to hear from my cousins and any Aunts or Uncles that are still alive.
Comments: I got this sent from my mom in Port Ludlow, WA. and it was claimed to have been caught off of Ocean Shores off the Washington coast. I was a bit skeptical, having been duped by previous urban legends so I searched a bit and came accross this site - the million dollar question is: How do I know THIS is the real deal??? HAHAHAHA!!!! Quite a shark.

Comments: I'm sure you all have heard about the Scotia Prince cancelling it's 2005 season by now. This is a travesty! Everybody looses on both sides (USA & NS). Businesses who have relied on the Prince for 35 years (even longer)could fail, not to mention tourism which is one of Nova Scotia's mainstays and certainly doesn't hurt the malls in Portland.
a saving gesture, I have proposed to the owner of the company, that
the Scotia Prince sail out of the Port of Baltimore. All
the big cruise ships (except the super big ones) now sail from our Port.
So what if it's a longer trip!. It's still better than driving and people
from the tri- state area (DC, VA, MD) have never really had the opportunity
to sail to NS. Conversely, Nova Scotians can come and shop, visit our nation's
capital and see a whole new part of the east coast that they have never
experienced before. If marketed properly there could be a "full ship on
every trip" they caould call it the "crustacean run" ( from
crabs to lobsters and back again....get it??)
Comment: This I think is a novel idea. I think is really interesting,
and worth consideration. It would open travel to a totally new market
of travelers. Since most tourists are as interested in the trip,
as much as the destination, the time spent on the boat is not a problem.
It is part of the trip. If anyone else has comments we will gladly
post them. Links: Maryland

Name: James 'Richard' Johnson
Location: Antigonish, NS
Comments: Hi. My grandmoter, Josephine Sweeney was from this area. She
married my grandfather & namesake in 1911 at St. Ambrose RC Church
& they moved to Saint John, New Brunswick. I started doing family history
almost 3 years ago but don't know many Sweeney relatives as I was only
2 when Josephine died on my 2nd birthday in 1958. I do have a picture of
her. Did you know that my grandfather was only 2 years old when his father,
Edward P. Johnson, took over as lightkeeper of the then new Chebucto Head
Light? James R would have only been 2 when his father moved the family
into the light. Edward kept the light until 1906 when he died May 3 of
that year. James R was an Engineer in the light until that time.He went
on to work for The Submarine Signal Corporation (Head Office-Boston) in
Saint John in the winter & Montreal in the summer. I have some pictures
of the family from the 1800s that have been dug up in the past 2 years.
The Johnson family hailed from County Wexford, Ireland having settled in
Halifax County (Bear Cove) somewhere around 1801.

My name is Nii Ayikwei Parkes. I am a writer from Ghana descended from Nova Scotians who settled in Sierra Leone (my grandfather James Charles Ernest Parkes migrated to Ghana) and it has always been family folklore that some of the family was left behind. Are there any Black Parkes families still in Nova Scotia, and if so, how can I contact them?

Comments: 4-23-05 My wife and I had the opportunity to visit Yarmouth after ferrying from Bar Harbor in 1997, NE, and I wish we could have stayed longer. My mothers ancesters were part of those pioneers run out by the british in 1735. And I would like to visit the area and walk the ground that my great-great grandparents walked. They ended up in Louisiana and are now called Arcadians. Is there any books written on this bit of history? Thanks, Grover Champion
