I am new to this group and it looks like a great group to be in.

I'm Stephen Charles Trask, Clifford Charles Trask, William Trask,
James Trask (1860-1936) and am looking to connect with my long lost
Trask cousins and any genealogy information.

I know my dad, grandpa, and great grandpa are from Nova Scotia.

I would appreciate any help/information any of you may have.

Thanks,
