Today The NSArchaeology society gathered a group of members to tour the provincial archives.  I was beyond excited.  I fondly remember spending hours going through rolls of microfiche researching my ancestors.  So much fun! That building is jammed packed with historical items.  Vaults of treasures. The Archivists preserve the past events of the province.  Trying to preserve the present for future generations.  I’ve always been aware of the historical importance, I never realized the importance of present day collection of important information.  

There are many types of photographics. Here’s the different types through the ages and when it was most popular. 

Daguerreotype 1842 – 1856 

Ambrotype 1855 – 1861 

Tintype 1860-1870

Carte de Visite 1860 – 1888

Cabinet Card 1875 – 1900

Chris Hadfield

My husband and I were lucky enough to get tickets to see Chris Hadfield our Canadian Astronaut. He spoke of his life and experiences. It was truly inspiring and life affirming really. His simple philosophy is to always have a goal and work towards it everyday. Your goals may change but it keeps you moving forward. He showed us dreams can come true. He made me proud to be a Canadian.
