Hi Felix

Thank you so much for all the information. As for the info about Al Langille I'm not sure because I was told by my Aunt that Peggy's Cove was a settlement Al started in 1930 but apparently she was wrong maybe he started a church in Peggy's Cove in 1930 or a town nearby. I will look into it further and let you know. I was also told that he left the ministry and went into building boats that they ran from Tancook to Miami as a rum runner against the Kennedy's who didn't like the competition. I don't know if I'm going to find out if that was true since it was during the prohabition and it was illegal.I was in Nova Scotia a few years ago and I went to Lunenburg Genealogical Society.When I arrived in Nova Scotia I picked up the books at the info center and in one of the books they had the advertisement for the Lunenburg Genealogical Society and listed Langille as one of the names with alot of information so I went there but didn't really have the time to do any research but I did do a little reading and picked up material on a membership. I've been interested ever since but just haven't had the time. One thing I do remember my dad telling me about before he passed away was that we had family on Little Tancook Island and that it was mostly his family that owned the property because there were 19 brother and sisters who settled there and they bought up all the land this was before my grandmother but I don't know how far back. I went there to take a ferry over to the island but I was looking for a large ferry and this small boat took off from the shore and when I asked someone they said you just missed the last ferry. I will keep in touch and if you learn any more please forward it.
Thanks again
