Bay Road;

Eastern Passage;

Musquodoboit Harbour, Including:- Jeddore District;

Porter's Lake;

St. Margaret's;

The directory also includes the Yellow Pages which enables you to search for businesses. This can be a great help because the owner's / proprietor's name is often given in the advertising.

It is obviously fairly easy to find people in the directory if you know the name and the area where they lived but we have made this directory fully text searchable so you can find any word (person, place etc.). As with all directories this is also a great way of finding other relatives which you weren't aware of, by finding all occurrences of the family name or of the maiden name of a spouse. The search capability is enhanced with our FastFind technology so that search results are presented almost instantaneously.
