Hello Jake:

Believe it or not, I am answering your messages of (gasp!) 8 years ago on - genforum.com -.

At a May 8th meeting in Barrington Passage, Shelburne Co, NS I had the chance to meet Phyllisa Mundell, Bob Mundell, Luella Belliveau, and Lorraine Larocque who made a very interesting group presentation to us about the time when trains were still running in the Shelburne County area.

I am President of the Yarmouth County Historical Society and we operate the second-largest nueum and archives in Nova Scotia after Halifax. I have been a life member of the Shelburne Genealogical Society for many years because many of my mother's family had a connection with the area, both as Planters and United Empire Loyalists. In my young years, I used to travel with my family to Shelburne and area because many of my mother's people had relatives and friends in that area. Because of my familiarity with Shelburne, I found the presentation of Phyllisa and family members very interesting.

I do family surname studies, where I gather information about the surnames and keep the info in small compact files. I was really interested in the MUNDELL surname because I already knew it was a name found mainly in northern NS or in Cape Breton, so when I saw your posting of 2004, the references to Arichat and Sand Point leaped off the page at me. I'm sorry no one has ever answered your very informative posting of 8 years ago.

Phyllisa telephoned me today and we had a good talk about her book "When The Trains Came Through" and talked in general terms about the history of the MUNDELL name. She is going to arrange to get a copy of her book to us at the Yarmouth museum.

All the best to you. I hope you will be able to get lots of good answers about the MUNDELL ancestors!
