   Introduction      Portraits of the Hassett family of Hassett, Nova Scotia
Portraits of the Hassett family
from the community of Hassett or Hassetts
in Digby County, Nova Scotia, Canada
Hassett is a community in the District of Clare (formerly New Tusket),
in Digby County (formerly part of Annapolis County), Nova Scotia
This community has always been named "Hassett"
although referred to by local people verbally as "Hassetts".
In 2004 the Municipality replaced existing "Hassett" roadsigns
with new signs reading "Hassetts" - why was this done?
