The Association of Nova Scotia

The association has a new website, and having spent sometime there this morning, I am quite impressed!

There have their library holdings online, a Facts and Tips page, and a Surname page.

They also have FREE databases that you can check. These are all good databases, with lots of information in them.

They databases are -

Index to records of the Halifax Funeral Home

Index to Vital Stats from "The Colonial Patriot" 1827-1834

Published Genealogies of Nova Scotia Families

Nova Scotia Genealogist Subject Index

Genealogical Newsletters of the Nova Scotia Historical Society

The new site is very pleasing to the eye, and it makes you want to believe that they will keep adding to the databases. They also have a Member's Only page, which also holds databases.

On Tuesday, the 27 November 2012, at 7:30, they will hold their 3rd Annual Brick Wall Busters in which they will address "Road Blocks in Your Genealogy Research: How to Proceed".

Dr. Allan Marble, CG(C), President, GANS and Ginny Clark CG(C), Past President, Genealogical Institute of the Maritimes will be there to help you get through those Brick Walls.

The meeting will be held at Akins A/V Room, Nova Scotia Archives,
Public Archives Site, 6016 University Avenue, Halifax, Nova Scotia.
