I had read that the settlement had problems and that the land wasn't the best that could have been offered. Having been there, I can say lots of rolling hills, lots of rocky soils. Not the f...

Yes, Mary, the images are poor aren't they? They were likely poorly done by whoever placed them on microfilm in the Canadian archives. Don't really know when they would have been done. They are available in the LAC, Library and Archives Canada as digital images. http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/da...

Hi Nancy. Yes, I'm interested. A Neil McSween, supposedly from Borsam was my great grandfather. Who knows? There could be a long ago connection to Skye. :D

I'm composing a post about what I'm stumbling on and putting it in the Seafaring section.

Thanks for the welcomes. :)
