Switzerland to Nova Scotia Mossmans

Hello fellow Mossmans,

According to extensive research carried on over a span of twenty years by Dr. Phillip L. Mossman from Bangor Maine, the Mossmans (originally Mosiman) of Nova Scotia originate
in Biglen Switzerland. They arrived in Halifax Nova Scotia circa 1750 and settled Kingsburg Nova Scotia a few years later.
After taking a cursory look at your website I am wondering if any of you might have connection to us. We are all descended from David Mosiman and Maria Hegg whom arrived in Halifax on a British ship named The Ann in 1750. I look forward to receiving responses.

P.S. Our hearts and prayers in Canada are with you. As we have on many previous occasions, in this crisis, Canada will stand with our friends and allies in the USA through thick and thin.
