I was interested to see that there are not that many Woolavers/Wolavers/etc out there. I can account for a few of those you found in the phone book directory.
My grand-father and great-uncle live in Digby, NS. My two uncles and aunt live in NS. My dad lives in Toronto. Two cousins live in Alberta. I have a great-uncle in NB. I live in Halifax, NS. To add to that I have a cousin in Mauritius, Indian Ocean and another travelling through Asia.
We come from an Annapolis Valley branch of Woolavers. My grand-father was born in Digby but his father came from the Valley. I don't know too much else. I'll ask the family and post more.
You mentioned my uncle Lance which I found interesting. His son is the one in Mauritius also named Lance. Lance Jr. is doing important work of his own working with the wildlife there in an effort to save endangered species there. Do all Woolavers like to travel as much as my family does?
