Sable Island

Report of Seth Coleman 4 July 1801

Archives are full of stories. Stories of ancestors and communities, of war and industry, of progress and art. The sweeping sagas of immigrants and newly-carved townships. The small moments captured in snapshots. Some stories come easily, through iconic MacAskill photographs, a rich trove of vital statistics, or a family journal. Some stories you need to work for.
