Family Tree

My last name is Swimm

I was told that The founder of Clarks Harbor is a Swimm.

I am going to schedule a trip with my Uncle to Sable Island in October to trace my family tree.

I am 65 and my Uncle is 84. I would like any information.

Thanks, Stan

You might consider contacting the above directly to see if they have archives that can be consulted in advance or by appointment.

Do not confuse Cape Sable Island with Sable Island. Many people do . Sable Island is off Halifax coastline and NOT the one you are looking for. You want Cape Sable Island which is near ( 50 miles) Yarmouth, NS. You can drive around through New Brunswick or take the ferry from Portland , Maine. Or, you can catch the ferry in Saint John , NB and land in Digby, NS which is about a three hour drive from Clark's Harbour . The town of Clarks Harbour is located on Cape Island and many Swimms (also spelled Swim) live there. Good luck. Enjoy your trip. You will meet lots of family there.
