Resources for Nova Scotia Newspapers[edit | edit source]

Newspapers are a helpful source when church and community records do not exist or are incomplete. Up to the late 1800s, few births were reported, and most marriages and deaths reported were of people in high social positions.

Newspaper Directories[edit | edit source]

  • Tratt, Gertrude E. N. A Survey and Listing of Nova Scotia Newspapers, 1752–1957. Halifax, Nova Scotia: Dalhousie University 1979. (Family History Library book 971.6 B33t; fiche 6087817.)
  • Nova Scotia Newspapers: A Directory and Union List, 1752–1988. Halifax, Nova Scotia: Dalhousie University, School of Library and Informational Studies, 1990. (Family History Library book 971.6 B33n9.)

Libraries and Archives[edit | edit source]

The majority of the early newspapers for the whole province of Nova Scotia are at the Public Archives of Nova Scotia (large microfilm collection).
