Bethelda Hannah Gavel

So, for a very long time now, I’ve been searching for the parents of Bethelda Hannah Gavel… my great great Gramma. I’ve had leads, but there was no certainty in them… until last night.

Searching through the Nova Scotia online archival database I found nothing by way of the name Bethelda Hannah Gavel… so I decided to just put the name Gavel in and sift through countless entries. It paid off. She was listed as Bethuld. And her parents, my newly discovered great great great Grandparents are Jacob William Gavel and Elizabeth Spavold (although the in the hand written archives it looks more like Spavil….).

This has opened up a whole barrage of new ancestors… a great many of them named Sarah, not surprisingly.

There will certainly be more to follow…
