Nova Scotia Historical Vital Statistics Online has been developed to work with up-to-date browsers and the most recent version of Adobe Flash.
Please note that there is a known error with Mac Safari — you can search, view and complete an order but there is an error when trying to download a purchased image. Please use Firefox or Chrome to download your electronic copy of a purchased image. Weâ€™re working on a solution for Safari and we are sorry for the inconvenience.
Viewing online image of the record:
We use Zoomify to view the images. You need Adobe Flash installed and supported by your browser. Flash is available at www.adobe.com. Click here for system requirements for Adobe Flash Flash will also automatically install when you try to view an image.
You will not be able to view the digitized image properly without the Adobe Flash. Click on the image to zoom in or out on the details. Click and drag your mouse over the image — left, right, up or down — and the image will move likewise, enabling you to navigate around the box, plus move to areas of the image not immediately visible. There is a tool bar at the bottom of each image that allows you to zoom in, zoom out, navigate left, right, up and down.
Please read our FAQ page or contact the Support Desk if you have additional questions.
