I am looking for geneology info. My mother is Anne I. Heffernan. Daughter of Robert Frances Heffernan who was brother to Wyndham Edward and Anne Isabelle Heffernan. Their father was Edward Donaldson Heffernan who married Bessie White from Portsmith NH. USA.  His father was Wyndham Edward Heffernan who Married Isabelle Swan Donaldson. I believe Springhill's Jean Heffernan is my Auntie Annie Heffernan's 1st cousin. I also believe that Springhill's Poet WE Heffernan was my great, great, grandfather. I will be ordering the books I have found, one written by Jean to find out more but if anyone is interested in sharing info, I too have much more to share from my Auntie Annies papers she left me! Thanks, Mary F. Goodman

There is much more but the above begins with the common progenitor of both your mother and Jean Dryden Heffernan.
Any linkages with Springhill from your Aunt Annies papers would be of interest. There are presently two telephone listings for Heffernan's in Springhill.

Dear Carl,
Your response was so informative and I can't tell you how much I appreciated reading about my family heritage. My mom filled in some bits and pieces that she knew such as birth/death dates and extended names of children/spouses etc. She was overwhelmed at how large the family really is. My Auntie Annie (Annie Isabelle Heffernan) left me info on extended family of Alfred Dudley Heffernan that are inclusive of only one of his sons, Alfred Donaldson and his spouse and three children. He was born in London, Ontario. This info does not include Springhill at all, but if it is info you would like I would certainly share it with you. I will be purchasing the book  "Recollections of a Nova Scotia Town" for my mom for a Christmas gift. I am grateful for you response. Thank You so very Much, Mary
