    Halifax was one of Diana's favorite ports. Her Tobin relatives arrived from Cork County, Ireland first in Newfoundland, and then moved to Halifax. After we arrived and took the three Hop On-Hop Off Bus sightseeing tours we went to the Halifax Memorial Library. Diana got special help from a reference librarian and was able to even find ...
