Question:

I am researching relatives who resided in Falmouth, Nova Scotia in the 18th century.  I have seen references to early tax records from Nova Scotia as a census alternative.  I know NEHGS has microfilm of the Canadian Census 1851-1901, but do you have any early Falmouth records?

 

Answer:

Besides the 1851-1901 census records for Nova Scotia we do have earlier tax records for Falmouth.  Not that these tax records did not name other family members, nor give the age of the occupant.  The years 1792, 1793, 1794, 1795 we have are on microfilm [NEHGS call # HA/741/C4-1767-1838].  These are located in cabinet # 57 on the 4th Floor Microtext Library.
