Nova Scotia Scots at Waipu 1854-1920" PUB IN 1991' I have found the stats
to be very helpful.The Gael Fares Forth by McKenzie pub in 1942 and again
in 1952 I have used at the Archives
I also have quite a few other books myself Lion of Scotland by Robinson pub
in 1952 ,1953 , Watchman Against The World by MacPherson pub 1962 , The
