Question:  Can you advise me where the church records are for Amherst and Springhill, Nova Scotia in the 19th and early 20th century?


Answer:  According to Terrence Punch and George F. Sanborn's Genealogist's Handbook for Atlantic Canada Research (Boston, NEHGS, 1997) both are located at the Nova Scotia Archives & Records Management in Halifax, Nova Scotia.  The church holdings for Amherst include: Anglican (1822-1965); Catholic (1888-1909); Methodist / United (1912-1984); Presbyterian (1840-1970).  For Springhill holdings these include: Anglican (1881-1962); Catholic (1897-1909); Methodist / United (1877-1983).
