34 BROWN, George S. Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Genealogies, Transcribed from the Yarmouth Herald. First Edition.
Genealogical Publishing Company, Baltimore, Maryland , 1993, ISBN:9780806313726 
BROWN, George S. Yarmouth, Nova Scotia Genealogies : Transcribed form the Yarmouth Herald. Prepared for publication by Martha & William Reamy. Assisted by Dr. Jo0hn McDonald Hilton, Genevieve Coleman, Diane Feindt, and Richard Souther. (Baltimore, MD) : Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., (1993). First Edition. Pp (2),[i]-ix,(1),1-947,(1). Map. Index . Double column. 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering to front board and spine. “While there seems to be an almost limitless amount of material that could be published in the field of genealogy, there are also many old publications that are not well known, have never been widely distributed, and are in danger of being lost. Such is the case with the work of George S. Brown which appeared in the NovaScotia newspaper the Yarmouth Herald. Published between 1896 and 1909, Mr. Brown's columns focused almost exclusively on New England families of Engl ish descent who migrated to Nova Scotia before, during, or immediately after the American Revolutionary War, many of them descendants of the original Mayflower colonists. They were largely seafaring families who had social contact with port cities throughouy the United States and the world, and in his numerous columns in the Yarmouth Herald Mr.Brown traced them from their earliest known origins in the old world down to the end of the. Nineteenth century. In an effort to make these valuable but long-forgotten columns accessible to the public, we have put together as complete a collection of thecolumns as possible, copied them out verbatim -- completely resetting the type -- and indexed them.” (from the Preface). "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. In article after article Brown traced these families from their earliest knownorigins in the old world down to the end of the nineteenth century, his co mbined output amounting to an encyclopedia of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia families. Brown's work has been badly neglected, owing to the scarcity of the Yarmouth Herald. To rectify this situation and place this invaluable body of source materials at the disposal of the researcher, Martha and Bill Reamy puttogether as complete a collection of columns as possible, reset the type, and indexed the entire collection. The 186 articles name as many as 60,000 individuals. With an Introduction by the noted Nova Scotia authority Col. Leonard H. Smith Jr., and with additional articles containing selected Yarmouth source records, this is clearly the pre-eminent work on Nova Scotia genealogy." Includes genealogies on the following families : Allan; Trask; Crosby; Archer; Huntington; Dennis; Bond; Hurlburt; Farish; Ellenwood; Bernard-Brooks; Archibald; Poole; Chipman; Horton; Flint; Gardner; Haskell; Mgray;Lovett-Lovitt; Crowell; Ellis; Bingay-Barclay; Done-Doane; Hele, Heley, He aley, Healy, Haley; Stowe; Huestis; Scott; Saunders; Stanwood; Foote; Cann,Porter; Robbins; Ring; Corning; harris; Bent; Williams; Raymond; Shaw; Eld ridge; Scovill; Landers; MacKenzie & MacKenna; Tedford; Strickland; Clements; Killam; Hilton; Kelly; Patten; Phillips; MacCormack; Rose; Bain; Murphy;Brown; Weston; Sollows; Kinney; Mayflower Pilgrims; Tinkham; Wyman; Durkee ; Butler; Hibbard; Churchill; Jenkins; Vickery; Cain; Lewis; Gowen; Redding; Crocker; Cook; Rogers; MacConnell; Perry & Parry; Parry; Pitman; Utley; Holmes; Trefry; Baker; MacIver; Goudey; Webster; Moses; Harding & Harris; Moodt; Dane; Richan; Coffran; Walker; Byrne; Slocomb; Tooker; Hersey; Thurston; Hammond; Killam; Rustl Beveridge; Pinckney; Hemeon; Special Genealogy – Kenney; Special Genealogy – Frost.

40 CAIN, Kit Leaves In The Wind
Soulful Stories Publishing, Yarmouth, N.S., 2006, ISBN:0978000544 
CAIN, Kit. Leaves In The Wind. Yarmouth, N.S.: Soulful Stories Publishing, 2006. Pp (6),1-133,(5). 8vo, white card covers. “The central figure of thisshort story is a biker named Montana LeFandra (not his real name). I was a bout to say "hero" of this story, but, on thinking about it, the shoe doesn't really fit the foot. Though the teller of the story might well see himself as a hero, there's some question about whether others would. Montana's swears to God the story is absolutely true. The only trouble I have with hisstatement is that I'm not at all sure who his God is . or how much of the story he lived himself, heard from someone else, or read about. A good story pulls me to it like fiddle music from a dance hall on Saturday night. I've heard a few good stories in my travels around the world, but very few long enough or believable enough to write a short story about. With Montana, however, it was different. We spent five months of the winter in the same RVpark in Southern California and he seemed to enjoy telling his story is mu ch as I enjoyed listening to it . regardless of how true it was. The ratheramazing thing to me was this: after I've heard someone else's story for an hour or two, I may remember the more exciting parts-or the more vividly de scribed events-but the memory's usually gone after a few days or weeks. Montana's story I remember every detail of, and have for five years! In fact, I wrote this story three years after I heard it from him. That says a lot more for his story-telling ability than it does for my memory! Montana claimed to be the Founding Father of the Iron Horsemen Motorcycle Club which started out as himself and a bunch of his biker buddies drinking, carousing with women, and spending weekends at various hideaways on the desert and in the mountains of southern California.They had so much fun that the Club gradually grew in size to over two thousand members . and also became a major management problem! How Montana handled it is a story in itself, but what hedid after an all-out life and death war with Hell's Angels is another stor y again . all of it written as faithfully as I can remember it between these two covers." - from the back cover. Very good to fine. 8.50
