Meet Ups at 33 Ochterloney Drive, Dartmouth


Our first Meet Up was truly a success! It was an opportunity for members to informally share historical family information, to meet other new and long-time members and to discover common interests in a relaxed atmosphere. We were able to share, to move around the room to ask questions, get direction/opinions about software programs or useful resources and the like. It included time to have a coffee/tea and a snack! One thing led to another and it was just great!
We are meeting again on the following Saturdays: July 9 and August 13, 9:30 – 11:30 am.
 
As many of our events are open to the public, we invite both GANS members and non members to the Meet Ups. Stop by for as long as you wish. Bring along your questions, historical family pictures, articles and stories that you would like to share with fellow enthusiasts.
 
See you then!
 

 


Thursdays Are Research Days!


Thursdays at GANS are a seasonal affair, until September or October. Every Thursday from 12 noon to 4 pm, Peggy and Lois staff the Research Room. Both have genealogical experience and education to help with your Nova Scotia queries, including:
  • Help you navigate Research Room Resources for your independent use.
  • Provide assistance with tools and methods to help track down that elusive NS ancestor or family.
  • Provide suggestions on how to organize and manage your genealogical projects.
  • Provide feedback on your research to confirm you are going in the right direction.
 
 
The Research Room is open to both members and non-members.
 
Are you one of our many international members who might be visiting Nova Scotia to combine holidays with research (doesn't everyone?) Let us know at least two weeks in advance so we can prepare for your visit and maximize your research time! Send an email to: info@novascotiaancestors.ca



 
All GANS operations are carried out by volunteers, including publications, membership renewals, workshops and website maintenance. Your patience is appreciated, when expecting responses to queries.
