Here is where you can find old friends, relatives, neighbours - and have them find you. A meeting place for Nova Scotia Ex-pats - for those who moved away and those who didn't. And if you wish, you can also tell the world how much you enjoy browsing the Highway7.com Ezine.

Make sure you also check the other volumes of our guestbook. You'll be glad you did.

(P.S. I also graduated from MSVU in 1982, any former classmates out there)

Oh no, it is that time of year again - Christmas! Will I ever get over being away from home at this time of year?! Does one mature? I do make it through the season because of my family I have here; my husband and son & daughter (Cailee & Logan) that is it. All you clans down there with your family around, I really envy you. However, I do manage to get to the east coast for 4 beautiful weeks during the summer to have fun and enjoy that ocean smell. Would love to hear from anyone during this Christmas or anytime. Enjoy the season!

Born in Truro in 1935
Joined the service in 1954 (Army)
Served in Alberta and made my home here after my release.
I have been back only for occasional visits.
I have been entertaining the possibility of retiring to N.S. when the time comes but I have no firm plans in that direction.
My field of endeavour is in electronics and I have been employed in industrial (Oilfeild production) electronics for the past fifteen years.
Since there is little or no employment in my feild in dear old N.S. I cannot see relocating there until retirement - if then -.

Hello, I was born in 1966 in New Waterford. When I was four years old my mother and four brothers moved to Ontario. I am now married with two children.
My father's name is Melvin and my grandfather's name is Robert.
The last time I was in Cape Breton was in 1981 with my grandmother, I was impressed by the land and the people.
My husband would like to see where my roots are from, hopefully soon. I would be happy to hear from any relatives.

Although not from Nova Scotia we did spend 6 1/2 great years in Bridgewater. I worked at Michelin Tire.Our two boys were born there and we still have a lot of friends there.
One such friend we lost touch with was Lorraine Sellars who remarried and is now a Fader. She lived in Bridgewater in the late 70's and early 80's. At that time she was married to Mike Sellars who worked for Michelin. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Striving to better my education and explore my interests in the landscape field. Playing Bluegrass music as a hobby but would like to expand my horizons in the music industry.
Missing home as always (especially the salt air) and my family. Great to have a page that caters to an opputunitiy of saying a few words to fellow maritimers. So a big hello and to say.."How's she going Bye"...( <:

Hi,
my name is Robert, nickname OJ.

Iam interested in finding my family members and be able to contact them if it is ok with them.

I was born in New Waterford, N.S. on May 7th, 1966 to Marion Elizabeth White. I have been raised, since an small child by my foster mother in Glace Bay. I was a ward of the Children's Aid Society of Cape Breton Sydney, N.S.

To my knowledge I have a sister named Linda Ann, Dorothy Irene, Violet Stella who remained in the custody of The Children's Aid Society Of Sydney, along with my brothers Ivan Wayne and Stanley Edward. I also have a sister Alice Jean and a brother David who were adopted in Quebec. Alice's birthday is April 6th, 1956 and David's is January 29th, 1955.

David and Alice may have been adopted through the Villa Marie Social Service Center West Island, Point Claire, P.Q.

Any person who might be able to help me out I would greatly apperciate it. I work for Dept.of Transport in Dartmouth, and have a daugher 3yrs old and a wonderful companion. Because of my Birth mother's death years ago, I am unable to find out little information on my own.
