The Genealogical Association of Nova Scotia was formed on June 19, 1982, and had its genesis in a standing Genealogical Committee of The Royal Nova Scotia Historical Society.

The by-laws conform to the Societies Act administered by the Registrar of Joint Stock Companies for the Province of Nova Scotia.

Membership in the Association stands at about 700, a little over 40% of whom live in Nova Scotia, almost 30% in the rest of Canada, and the remaining 30% in other countries, mostly in the United States.

The Association is a member of the Royal Nova Scotia Historical Society and Heritage Trust of Nova Scotia.

The Association exchanges publications with many other societies and libraries. Electronic publications are available in the Members' Only Area and paper copies are available in the Terry Punch Research Library.
