Comments: I just wanted to see pictures of Surette's island. It is where
my family is from.
Comments: Hi Everyone,
I have been working on my family tree for many years & am getting nowhere by
conventional methods.My ancesters said only that they were from Nova Scotia,
they did not say where "in" Nova Scotia. they were there in the 1700 & 1800& migrated
to Boston & Gloucester, Mass. 1800 & 1900. I'm trying to post a message in each of
your lovely counties in hopes some one will read this & get in touch with me with
knowledge of the following surnames:
Some day when I can find my ancesters I am going to visit all
your beautiful Nova Scotia. Thank you for providing a place to
post this message.

Comments: Hello everyone! Have a nice day!!
Comments: After growing up in yarmouth, I enjoy visiting family and
in the area. It was nice to see this site , and surprised to see that
it included South Ohio. With our communities worried about oour
biggest industries being taken away , maybe some of the people looking
at this will realize that there are alot of people in our fishing
communities that are affected by the recent decisions being made by the
supreme court of Canada. Tourism may be the only thing left in our beautiful
part of the world.

other acadian communities. Thanks for listening Fran Dobson

Location: Westport, Connecticut
Comments: My mother was raised on Cape Forchu and I spent many, many
wonderful summers visiting my grandparents on the Cape, playing in the
"Old Lighthouse", roaming all around the Cape from Ship's stern to the
back shore. My mother and grandparents are gone now, but there is
a very special place in my heart for the Cape. My son also feels
the same way I do. It was a wonderful place to grow up, and I am
always renewed when I visit "the Cape". After spending 20 years in
Dallas, Texas, I now look forward to visiting the Cape more often.
Name: Chuck Drinkwater
Comments: After searching my genealogy for three years and finding my ancestors all the way back to two passengers on the Mayflower,I found that the Drinkwaters settled on Cousins Island,Yarmouth,Me.They raised 9 sons and 2 daughters and the brothers all became ship captains and later became ship builders right there in Yarmouth.Once they all sailed into Boston Harbor the same day and the commander of the fort thought something was suspicious where they all had the same name so he sent a messenger into Boston to check.After it was confirmed he invited them out to the fort for dinner.
