GANS Has a New Office

GANS Has Found a New Home
After an intensive search for a new office space GANS has found a wonderful new office space in the Quaker Landing Building at 33 Ochterloney Street, Dartmouth. We are in the proces of moving into the space and getting set up. Once things are organized we will be have an open house! 

GANS Lectures Now Online

The GANS Executive is happy to announce that we are going to begin making videos of our lectures available online in the Members Only Area. Providing lectures online for out of town, out of province, or out of country members was one of the main requests in our last members’ survey.

The first filmed lecture available online was from the AGM in May and is a great presentation by Terrence M. Punch entitled "Montbeliard Immigrants to Nova Scotia, 1749-1752."

These videos are being hosted by Vimeo, and are located in the Members Only Area; therefore a membership is required to view the videos.
