The Provincial Newspaper Collection held at the Nova Scotia Archives includes over 750 titles, from the Halifax Gazette, 23 March 1752 to, in some cases, recent issues of a community newspaper. In addition to haphazard and very incomplete notices for births, marriages and deaths, newspapers can be a fascinating souce of community history for genealogical research.
The Nova Scotia Historical Newspapers available on this website, provides a small but growing selection of digitized newspapers from the Provincial Collection.
Also, a searchable database provides access information about the microfilmed portion of the Provincial Newspaper Collection held at the Nova Scotia Archives.
Several special guides are available onsite for genealogical researchers looking for family information in newspapers:
