I'm looking for info on Isaac Sellers, b. 23 Jun1849, d. 10Feb1919.
Catherine Ann Crawford. They lived in Lawrencetown, Halifax Co NS. They
had Nathan E, Walter J, Arthur W, Florence J, Clifford L. I'd like to know
Isaac's parents, siblings, & what became of Walter, Florence & Arthur.
I know that Nathan was in Amherst Head Cumberland Co NS in 1901.
1901 census, he's listed as working for Robert Taylor. From the marriage
records, I found his birthdate & place. From family records I also know

A lot of Maritimers emigrated to the States in the 1830s onwards,
for greener pastures. Of course there was a reverse migration when the
Loyalists migrated to Canada, including the Maritimes, in 1812. So I
what happened to Walter, and his sister Florence.
I do all my research online, and because I no longer live in NS,
records & archives are not available to me. Although I could obtain them
through interlibrary loans, that would mean I would have to research in
library and only during library hours and I would have to pay money, which
would soon add up since I 'm researching both paternal & maternal lines
my family as well as my husband's.
I use Cyndi's List at www.cyndislist.com/novascot.htm
It's a wonderful
site with links to all the counties in NS, as well as links to other
Canadian provinces. There are links to everything a researcher would
history, surname lists, vital records, census, passenger lists, societies,
What I need to know from Halifax Co is not online so I thought by
list someone familiar with my line might read it and get in touch with me
