I received a notice from the Genealogical Association of Nova Scotia (GANS) (of which I am a member), that they have found a new place for their office in the Halifax – Dartmouth area of Nova Scotia.
After an aggressive search, the Committee was successful in locating an office that meets GANS current and future needs.
The search committee established a set of criteria for the new location:
1. Room and structural integrity for expansion of research collection.
2. Quiet area for research.
3. Meeting and office administration space.
4. Separate room for processing and storing donations, acquisitions and our inventory.
5. Accessible space.
6. Lecture/large meeting room to seat 50 people.
7. Quiet building, suitable parking and street level visibility in high traffic/high profile area with potential for highly visible signage.
The Committee visited over a dozen locations throughout HRM. The office located in the Quaker Landing building at 33 Ochterloney Street, Dartmouth was the space that best met the above criteria. This 1731 square foot office will have a dedicated library area, a research room and a large meeting room where GANS can hold monthly lectures and workshops. library and collections will be protected for use by our members and the general public”.
So the new office is right downtown, just up from the ferry from Halifax, and is in the perfect place.
They plan to have an Open House once everything is unpacked, and you can
contact them through the Executive Director, Dawn Josey firstname.lastname@example.org.
