Ask a Genealogist: Nova Scotia probate records.

 Permanent link


As a new member of NEHGS I would like to know what the easiest way to use Nova Scotia probate records of the 19th century. Would it be easier to travel to Salt Lake City, or Nova Scotia to see a variety of counties?


At NEHGS we have microfilm copies of all the Family History Library microfiln for probates and deeds for Nova Scotia. You can utilize a finding guide to determine which counties are arranged alphabetically, or best used with a calendar of wills, etc. If you have a specific question relating to our Microtext holdings please feel free to call 617-226-1239.
