Comments: Already planning our summer vacation to visit family in NS... tho' originally from Yarmouth they now live in Halifax area & Sydney. Looking forward to our family tradition of getting off the ferry from Maine & immediately going to Harris's Quick & Tasty Restaraunt for their fabulous fish cakes. Another tradition is to spend a night at Eaton's Cottages on the lake and feed the everpresent ducks.

Hoping that someone there in Port Maitland will know the current address of Brenda (Crosby) Cunningham who grew up on the Richmond Road. I lived right up the road from her and Gerald, across from Joe and Emily Carey.
Wishing you all a Happy Holiday Season.

Comments: I found the information on my hometown, Yarmouth, very interesting and informative for those who have not been
to that area of Nova Scotia. However, I was extremely disappointed that there was no mention at all of the
CJLS radio station. My grandfather, Laurie Smith, was the founder of that enterprise, and it's development helped to
put Yarmouth and the entire South Western Nova Scotia on the proverbial map. I think that some recognition of Laurie
Smith's achievements should definitely be aired on your Yarmouth web pages.

Comments: I enjoyed my visit to your site. 
If anyone is related to my Yarmouth side of the family (ATKINS/ROBICHAUD), I would love to hear from you. 

The ATKINS relationship is through my late mother; Mary Madeline JAMES, daughter of Thomas Henry JAMES (b.1896 in Liverpool) and (A)Mary Lillian ATKINS (b.1905/6 in the Yarmouth), her mother's name was Mary E. "Doan" ROBICHAUD (b.1862/6 in the Yarmouth) and her father's name was Malford ATKINS (b.1860/2 in the Yarmouth).

My grandmother (A) had a brother named Henry and one of her sisters married into the SAUNIER? family.  Her son Herbert married into the MUISE family.  She was a Roman Catholic of French or Acadian origin.  Does anyone remember this family?

Thank You

Grew up and went to school there.

Visit "home" as often as possible.  Have only nephews and their families in the Argyles now.
Recognized so many of the dwellings...truly a walk down memory lane!
Keep up the good work.

Comments: I have not lived in Yarmouth for 35 years, but for those of us who long to be "home", modern technology is a wonderful gift. No matter where you are in the world, with only a couple of clicks of your mouse, you can view the road/weather cam located at the Richmond Road exit to hwy 101 in Port Maitland, where you get a video like picture of what the weather is like. Or you can access the Lurcher Marine forcast, important if you are a fisherman in Sandford, Overton or Pembroke, along with other fishing communities along the Fundy shore.

You can sign on to the Vanguard's home page, to keep track of important local news and events. As I am writing this note I am listning to CJLS, complements of Winamp. I am 2000 miles away, but it sounds like I am in my home in Yarmouth. Do you think maby I should move?

Comments: I took these pictures of Yarmouth so others can see the character, beauty and charm that we have to offer. There are many former Yarmouthians who miss home so I hope these bring back memories. 


Webmaster Comment:  Thanks again for the pictures Lynn.   This sites contains lots of interesting and beautiful pictures of the Yarmouth area.  Well worth your viewing time. 
Lynn Hemeon Comments: If there is anyone who wishes a picture of your street or old residence , please email me. I may have it or will get it for you. Only pictures of Yarmouth as I have very few outside of town, but you never know.
This is only for those who have moved away and miss good old Yarmouth and it's FREE.
