E.J.

There are not that many Burridge or Harrington names in NS. Why not contact some of those inteh phone listings - www.canada411.com - and see what they know ?

I'm not sure, but I believe the George Burridge who was the principal at Yarmouth's Vocational School in the 1950's was from Truro or Cape Breton. Maybe your Levi was in the same family line.

By the way, some Burridge and Harrington people came to NS from Newfoundland, so you may have to do some checking there too. I find it can be helpful to "match up" the last names of families who come from the same geographical parts of our provinces. That way you can eliminate some "red herrings" when you are searching.

DO you know about these info sources:

NS genealogy posting site - www.nsonline.com/forums/forum1.cgi -
