New Vital Statistics Being Prepared for Online Access
A new crop of vital statistics records was released on 31 December 2013 and is now being prepared for www.novascotiagenealogy.com. This year, the records include births registered in 1913 (including delayed registrations); marriages registered in 1938; and deaths registered in 1963. Over 25,000 new research possibilities!
The records are currently being digitized at the Nova Scotia Archives, electronic indexes are being constructed or improved upon, and quality control testing is underway. We anticipate uploading in July, with further information to be posted as we approach launch date.
