Good news, Nicola, thanks for letting us know.

Well my friends, patience is indeed a virtue!

Today I received an email from my relation, out of the blue. She has tracked me down. Clever gal, since it needed ALOT of detective work on her part. I was just about to try to find her again and the file was in my 'pending/to do' pile.

I will pm all those who helped me with this one in case they don't see this reply.

Thank you to all of you. A happy ending.

Oh, thank you to everyone again on this one.

I think that I will have to 'take the plunge' and write to her and hope I don't frighten her too much!!

Chrissiex: apologies for my oversight re double posting but it was an innocent mistake on my part. Forgive?

Just wanted to explain. When I did that look-up on 411 back in March it did read H. Creighton, Tantallon, N.S. but it now reads Sebright, N.S.


chrissiex Report 16 Nov 2011 08:33

I do not see a listing in Tantallon but there is the one in 'Sebright'

Seabright has a population of 522,_Nova_Scotia

I think that if you sent a letter without an address it would probably get there :-)

Nicola it is not good to ask the same thing in more than one thread

Thank you all again.

Just a long shot - can anyone see a 'Robert Jermain Hervey Creighton' listed who died about a year ago?

This is Helen's father.

Just did a look up at
Only hit is for "H Creighton - Nova Scotia" is in Sebright (sic), but no further info re addy - just a phone #.

I know that it is a long gap since the last post on this thread but I had hoped to be able to tidy up this link myself.

I have pm'd kind Margee to tell her that the Tantallon person in the Seabright area is the right person.

However, the site only gives part of the address so I don't have enough detail to send her a letter yet.

Although there is a phone number listed, I think that my telephone contact at this stage would be too much of a shock!!

Can anyone see the full address for her, please? I would be very grateful.


Margee Report 23 Mar 2011 13:52

the first one that comes up on the 411 site is in Tantallon which is relatively close to Seabright.

Hello Jim and MadBull.

Thank you for replying.

Yes, I do mean telephone directories, etc., etc.

I'm looking for the Seabright area, please.

Need to go out now for a bit and will return early evening.

Many thanks.

Look at this URL to see if you can find yours.

Can someone please see if they can find a HELEN CREIGHTON in the current directory/ies in Nova Scotia?

I would be very grateful.
