  1. Hi,

    We are up for the summer at the stone cottage in Beaver River, built on my great-grandfather’s (Capt. John Goudey Perry) land by my grandfather.

    I was interested in the Captain’s talks you are having during seafest. As I am a Perry/Beveridge/Raymond (Crosby, Porter, Goudey, Robbins, etc) would any of the presentations be of interest? Also, do you have a more specific schedule?

    Thanks so much. You can respond by e-mail or our phone number is 649-2169 (except right now the connection is really bad, so e-mail is best).

  2. I wish I could be there. Capt. John Goudey Perry was my Great great grandfather so I am trying to learn more about tracing my families NS roots.
