About meAs writer and historian with a background of many years of genealogical research, I am looking forward to the day when I can incorporate these passions into a creative work life and leave the everyday slog of earning an unrelated living behind.

About my libraryMy library reflects my interests so it leans heavily towards history and genealogy and the art of writing. These books represent the knowledge that I wish to delve into and I just hope that I will have the chance to read them all one day.

I enjoyed your comment about Louise Penny on my thread. I am glad you enjoyed hearing her.

Also, good luck with the writing. Have you some writing that you are working with even while still be distracted by that nonsense of having to make a "living"?

I also, thought it was interesting that you and I recently added Anatomy of Exercise for 50+. What a lovely book. I hope it helps me get to be a bit more fit.

Hi, we seem to have some common interests- I am researching the Yorkshire migration to N.S. 1774. can you recommend any books that describes the lives of the migrants when hey arrived, or of the voyage over? Thanks, Ann
I see that you have read a book by [John Robert Colombo] Did you know he just registered with LT and you can be one of the first to send him a message or add him as your friend?

You can find him under "jrc"

If you have any trouble get back to me.

In 1993 I did some research in London at the P.R.O. A trainee of Captain James Cook commanded a storeship during the Revolution. The ship was attached to the New York Squadron of the Royal Navy. In 1778/79 he delivered to Nova Scotia some two dozen plus persons of African descent. The ships log lists each person by first and last name. The port of their departure was in Virginia. Does your holdings discuss this migration?

I notice your holding of the 1752 Census of Nova Scotia. I would like to ask some questions about arrivals in Nova Scotia during the period 1770/1780. Thank you.
