For more detailed information about the beginning of the WHITMAN'S, P.D. Crowe has done a great job at her site.  She has even helped me when I first got started.  I didn't even know where to begin.  P.D. has also been granted special permission to put the "Annapolis Valley Whitmans" book online. She has also received the domain rights for "Whitmania".  Thanks, P.D.

Here is a link to HISTORICAL SKETCH OF NEW ALBANY by Neander P. Whitman.
This was contributed to Whitmania! By Harriet Angulo, a Descendant, through the courtesy of Acadia University Archives.
This wonderful essay on life in New Albany, Nova Scotia, was passed to P.D. Crowe, by Harriet Angulo, a Descendant of Neander P. Whitman. P.D Crowe states, "I think you'll enjoy reading about the history of New Albany and the quaint customs and deep religious faith that helped these early settlers triumph against the harsh environment."
