Looks like it's all working then :)
I'm really enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Excellent work!
Nice website! I really enjoyed attending the meeting about the history of Georgefield.
This is so encouraging as I am researching the Foley Family from the Selma Dist in the mid 1870s- 1890s. Thank you for this link Beryl Davidson, Hervey Bay, Queensland Australia
Is there any possibility of researching records at your museum at times other than the summer open hours? I live in Utah and may have an opportunity to visit Hants County in the fall or winter. I am descended from the Laffins, Hennigars, Anthony's, Densmores, Millers, Gills, etc. of the area.
I absolutely enjoyed visiting the East Hants Museum. The painted surfaces really made an impression on me. The ceiling scroll is quite beautiful and the faux marbleization really attracts the eye. A big thank you to Kate for being a great guide. I am so happy you were interested in the Painted Rooms project. Thank you for allowing us to photograph the museum. I will be in touch. p.s. This website is great!
So glad you have a great website! Wish I was there for the history of Georgefield meeting. I live in Halifax but would love to come to future meetings. Will be visiting soon.
Have you ever considered removing those trees in front? It's such a great old building but one can hardly see it for those trees!
Hi,Am in the process of beginning to write a History of Kennetcook and it's people, from the time the 1st settlers came to Kennetcook. Never realized how much info you have until I started my researching. Would love to access information before December 1st, 2009 if possible. My family Ettinger and Faulkner and Bonn.Thanks, will contact Mr Rhyno by phone.
I love this site.
Great to see a website dedicated to the history of this area! I remember this place as a church; it is where my Great Grandparents are buried (Rex and Ruby McKeil). I am a descendant of the Hennigar's and O'Toole's.
Just discovered this Web site. Will be visiting the museum hopefully within the next few years. Am researching my family tree. We are descended from Thomas Melvin Miller and Helen (Hennigar) Miller of Schubenacadie. Anyone interested in information about this family is welcome to e-mail me at email@example.com
Great great grand son of William Burton of Latties Brook. Interested in contacting any Burtons in that area. I live in Colton, California.
Great Museum. Keep up the good work. Alice and I visited the facility on 7/30/2010. We later, watched the tidal gore just south of Maitland. Wow! Great show.We invite you to visit the Miller County Historical Society at http://www.millercountymuseum.org. Alice & I grew up in Miller County, Missouri.

Any information or would love to connect with fellow ancestryseeker.
its nice for lack of a better word to see a site so easy to navigate. One question are the cementaries on cd yet and can they be bought
Just saw your article in the June 29, 2011 weekly Press. I am researching the surname Carmichael and found three burials in a cemetery in Walton. I'd like to visit to do some research this summer. Great website - looks nice and is easy to navigate.
the lead in says "including an embalming table that was used in 1912 to prepare victims of the Titanic." but when you get there one is not sure which artifact is which and there is no story with the embalming table from Shubenacadie as I recall
Alan, There is a document which explains all about the embalming table...which sits on the embalming table. The museum has undergone many changes in the last few years - when were you last there?
Just wondered if there was any room on the links page for the local Provincial "Historical" site of the Lawrence House Museum?
Keep up the good work!
I am a decendant of the Ettinger family. Winthrop Ettinger was my great grandfather and settled in Hull, Mass.in the 1880's. His son Horace Ettinger was my grandpa. They were from Truro, NS. How can I get more info on the Ettinger family?
I read few content on this web site,Very wonderful information can be found on web site.Just declaring you are very inspiring. Thanks again.
Keep up the fantastic piece of work,Many thanks, the contents of the article is very prominent, Your blogs normally have got a lot of really up to date info.
I used to go to this church was born in the house just across from it when i go home and if it is open i go in . a lot of nice things to see at the museum , glad to see it was open as a museum after the church was closed .
The whole country watched to see if Howe would be returned to Ottawa to lead Nova Scotia into Confederation on the best terms possible. Howe toured the whole county and eventually won, which eventually led to all of Nova Scotia accepting Canada. Thanks for sharing.
It's been some time since I was last at the museum, but it has a great collection! I grew up in a very old house in East Noel and am wondering where/if I can get any solid information on its history. If you (or anyone else) knows where I can start, it would be appreciated!
Go to home page because the data out there would provide you with a assist once you decide order wonderful written essay and to realize the most effective objectives once it involves wonderful persuasive essay writing.
I am a volunteer with the Shubenacadie Canal Commission and I represent the Commission on the East Hants Tourism Review grouup. I am wonderiing whether those of us involved in heritage witihin East Hants should not have a get together to discuss ways we can support each other. For example we could provide brochures or at least information about your Museum iin the Fairbanks Centre in Shubie Park. We are continually encouraging people to explore the communities and sites along Hwy 215. Cheers, Bernie Hart, Shubenacadie Canal Commission.
Generally, a historical society focuses on a specific geographical area, such as a county or town or subject, such as aviation or rail. Thanks.
I love reading information on communities in East Hants, having been born in Maitland/South Maitland, and attended school in Walton in the 1940's and South Maitland school in the early 1950's and Kennetcook HNRH in teh later 1950's. I have been trying to find a picture of the 2 room schoolhouse I went to in South Maitland, I would appreciate it if anyone could tell me where I can find a picture.
It was a right decision of the East Hants Historical Society to launch this website. Choosing the Weebly platform offers you with unlimited possibilities of blogging with no wastage of money. A number of plugins are supported, like twitter, Facebook, etc. Regards.
Interesting post, i love to visit your blog everyday
My mother, Maude McLaren was from Five Mile River. My Grandmother a Webb from Noel. Our family is also related to the Blois, O'Brian, Hennigar and Ettinger families. I have most of the family history researched and a few artifacts.
Harold, You missed a couple of Webb family relationships in your post to the East Hants Historical Society website. Your Webb family is related to the Main and Anthony families of the Noel/Noel Shore/Lower Selma areas. Robert Nelson Webb, for instance, married Ellen Jane Main March 11, 1886 and they had a family of 11 children.
Ellen Main was the great granddaughter of Andrew Main who came from Scotland on the Hector, landing at Pictou in 1776. His wife died on the voyage over and Andrew later married Jane Hamilton from Noel Shore, (I think), and Ellen Main was a descendant from this marriage.
So very interesting! I am descended from Reuben Lively who received a land claim in Rawdon when he fled District Ninety Six in Carolina. I am proud to come from one of these strong pioneering families!
Oh my goodness! a wonderful post dude. Thanks Even so My business is experiencing problem with ur rss . Do not know why Struggling to join it. Is there anybody obtaining identical rss concern? Anyone who knows kindly respond. Thnkx
I am looking for the cemetery records for West Gore Cemetery.
At the top of the listing of the cemeteries there is a statement. "Please note: These records only show the inscriptions on marker stones."
That is OK, but I can't figure out how to bring up the West Gore Cemetery and look at the inscriptions in the records.
Sorry to say these records are not digitised. These are records available for viewing in the museum.
Hello Edgar, I was born in West Gore,Nova Scotia and I return to that area to visit my mother each year..What info did you want from the cemetery?..Perhaps I could take photos of headstones,etc. for you..Let me know as I shall be travelling to N.S. soon..Dawn.
My father is in west gore cemetary along with many others Perhaps I can help? Would also like to access those records Sharron
Great site. I am planning a trip to Rawdon, Nova Scotia this spring/summer to research my Fenton line. I'm very excited and wonder when in June the museum will be opened. Thanks!
My grandparent's were Fentons from Gore, Clarksville area. Perhaps we are related?
Hi. Very happy to find this site but the links are not working in all cases. I am descendant from Noel Doiron and Marie Henry through their Daughter Marguerite who was not on the Duke William in 1758. Looking for more information and it looks like this site has it if the links worked. Any suggestions?
looking for info on the Samuel Meek families who came from So Carolina after Siege of 96 and settled in Centre Rawdon Hants. Burial in St. Paul's Anglican Church. Later emigrated to Maine and Massachusetts. Grandfather is Boardman Meek.
Hello, I've just started looking into my family history and beginning a family tree. I'm looking forward to the next time I'm in Nova Scotia to visit the museum along with the West Hants Historical Society.
Great job lovely website.
