Comments: I was thrilled to find this site! My maternal grandmother's name was "Rosalie Octavie Muise". Her parent's names were also "Muise". My mother (Marie Rosaline Lorgere) tends to be tight-lipped about this side of the family, I suspect because of the atmosphere of the day when she was growing up. I think she felt that one minority was enough. Rosalie married Alvinie Anatole Lorgere. She was born in "Eelbrook" -- now called St. Anne du Ruisseau. My sisters and I are fascinated that we have Mi'kmaq in our family history and family tree. We would welcome contact with anyone out there who might know something about any of this. I know my mom has told me stories about the expulsion of the Acadians, but she never mentions if her family was involved.

I was so totally surprised by this website (and grateful). I was also thrilled to see a picture of Dad's house. I can show my oldest daughter this website and show her what she has to look forward to next summer!
Many thanks! Lisa (Bouchard) Smith

Comments: I only spent two months in Yarmouth, but it has stayed with me in my heart for the past 5 years. I fell in love with all the sights and the people in this little town. I am planning to take my son back next year. I cant wait. I miss the ocean and the beautiful landscape. I loved sitting at the lighthouse (tranquility bas #1) and miss the calm feeling it brought me. I will return to that lighthouse with as much awe as the first time I saw it. Yarmouth is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen, the first of course being the mountains. My son and I cannot wait to see our friends and family again, but most of all I cant wait to see the ocean!!

Comments: How could I possibly find more information about my family who once lived in PV? My great grandfather was James Kenneth Crosby (b. 10 Apr 1861) married to my great grandmother Lucetta May Cann (b. 1858). They emigrated to California in about 1910. My great grandfather's first wife, Blanche Crowell Crosby (b. 1870 & d. 8 Sep 1891), is buried in the church cemetery in PV. Both my grandfather, Murray Harvey Crosby (b. 4 Nov 1895) and his sister Winifred Eva Crosby (b. 18 Feb 1899) were probably born in PV.
I often wonder if I have any family left in the area. If
put me in touch with someone there who might be interested in helping

Name: Jason McElhiney Mitchell
Comments: My great aunt, Margaret (Mitchell) Berndtson (1905-1999) hailed from Yarmouth, Nova Scotia and attended Ellenwoods Kindergarten and the Yarmouth Academy. Her mother ________ Saunders used to live on Lake George Hill and they attended Providence Methodist church until they sailed from Yarmouth to Boston aboard the Prince George in 1926, bound for West Newton, and later Waltham, Massachusetts.
Her grandfather, Jesse Crosby, was a mate on the Brigatine X. Aagua (spelling?), which was lost at sea September 3, 1874. Jesse was survived by his wife, Sara (Saunders) Crosby, a daugther (name not known) and two sons, Eugene and Warren.
As a young boy, I visited Nova Scotia, sailing on the Bluenose from Maine, and recall visiting a light house run by my family in Cape _______, Canada. From family stories, I know one relative was the Harbor Master and, it's been said, one was an owner of John's Cove Fisheries - but I don't know what is fact or fiction.
After my great aunt's death, I received her copy of "Up from the Sea", and, after reading her notes, want to locate my family in Canada.
If anyone reading this is related to or knows the names mentioned, I would love to hear from you. Thank you.

Comments: I just wanted to ask the gay New York couple to please not think that all Yarmouthians are against gay marriage. I'm a fifty year old married (to a man) woman and I feel that everyone has the right to find love where ever they can and I certainly feel that gay people (yes, folks they ARE people!) have as much right to wed as anyone else. There are always a few big mouths flappin' their narrow minded opinions in the hope that they can sway other people viewpoints. They should just mind their own business.
