Yarmouth Nova Scotia Genealogies

Published between 1896 and 1910, George Brown’s columns in the Yarmouth Herald focused almost exclusively on New England families who migrated to Nova Scotia around the time of the Revolutionary War, many of them descended from Mayflower colonists. Brown’s work had been badly neglected, owing to the scarcity of the newspaper; however, Martha and Bill Reamy put together as complete a collection of columns as possible, reset the type, and indexed the entire collection. The 186 articles in this consolidated volume name as many as 60,000 individuals.
