I wrote the book "Hessians of Nova Scotia". Anyone having a "Hessian" ancestor, who had settled in Canada after the war, and needs more information about him, is invited to contact me direct at my e-mail address. I have over 2000 names in my Personal Data Files, and I am willing to share information. But do not forget, sharing information is a two-way affair, so I would like to know what you know about him too. John Merz. You can post your query with - AMREV-HESSIANS-L@rootsweb.com - mailing list.
