The Archives of Nancy Prescott Forrest

There are goldmines, and then there are goldmines…

I just found out that the National Archives of Nova Scotia has all the genealogy information collected by my 1st cousin 2x removed Nancy Forrest (1910-2006).  Just reading this is like the “dream wish list” for anyone researching this part of my family.

[Note: I’ve decided to bold the items I have ordered so I can keep track of what I have and what I don’t have yet.]

About cthomas1967

Seeking to bring my ancestors out of the shadows of history and into the light. I have always been interested in history, and at a few different times I tried to do a family tree, but wasn't able to do it with the technology that was available then. On a business trip I visited the World War I Museum in Kansas City, MO and it was a very impressive establishment. While I was there I remember thinking, "Didn't my great-grandfather father fight in World War I? And wasn't his brother killed alongside him in some famous battle? I wonder if I can find out where he died." That's what started it all. View all posts by cthomas1967
