Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788436813, CD-ROM)

Mr. Miller "having some knowledge of the first settlement of Colchester, the names of the first settlers and their descendants, especially of the Townships of Truro and Onslow, as well as with many circumstances connected with the early settlement of the County, obtained by tradition and otherwise, was induced to note down, from time to time, some of them, in order that his children, and others who may come after, might know something of their forefathers, and the hardships they underwent in settling a new country." Although his original intention was to write about his own family, in the telling of his story, he mentioned nearly all of the Grantees of the Townships of Truro, and some of Onslow and Londonderry. Chapter 1 begins with the destruction by British soldiers of the French settlements in the area and Chapter 2 outlines the arrival in Halifax of Governor Cornwallis and a fleet of ships loaded with passengers from England. Some of the early settlers came north from New England to find land and make a home. Mr. Miller emphasizes the hardships they faced and their perseverance in creating a home and a life for themselves. Each additional chapter presents the genealogies of the families who settled in the area and made Nova Scotia their home.
