The Antoft family, consisting of Otto Hugo, his wife Asta Sigrid (née Rump), and their three sons, Otto Hjalmar, Finn, and Kell, emigrated from Denmark to Canada in 1930. They first lived in Winnipeg, MB where Hugo worked for the Colonization Department of the Canadian Pacific Railway, but by 1933 they had moved to Lakeville, Kings County, NS where the family established a poultry farm and pork curing business. When Hugo died in 1954, Asta wound up the business and in order to support herself, started a nursery that eventually became widely-known and well-respected as Mrs. Antoft's Gardens. Records for Hugo, Asta, Otto, Finn, and Kell, as well as one for the records of the Andresen family and another for the Viking Air Service are included in the collection, although many have not been digitized. Many records in the collection are written in Danish.
