Research Support
As more people have become involved in genealogy and as increasing numbers of records have been digitized, there has arisen a need for research support: researchers hit a dead end, it is too far to get to the research location, the difficulty of the assignment requires assistance, and people just run out of time.

Look Up Services
 
 A “lookup” is a specific request to find out whether we have genealogical information on a particular person, in a particular database or publication we have.  The user has all of the specific search criteria (name, 10-year-date-range, location, and publication/database), but needs someone to look it up for them.  The user can check the library catalogue for the publications we have.  Our digital databases include Chronicle-Herald obituaries for 1961-1999, and Death, Burials & Probate for 1852-1908.
 
Please send an email to queries@novascotiaancestors.ca with the lookup information after payment.

Property Research - Index Listing
The property database provides for both indexed searches and the retrieval of complete documents. These include land deeds, mortgages, and similar instruments, which often provide significant genealogical information going beyond the specific property details. The first step to obtaining a document is searching the index.  Please send an email to queries@novascotiaancestors.ca with the First Name, Last Name and County once you have made your purchase.

Where information is incomplete, charges are for time + index price. If your information is incomplete, email queries@novascotiaancestors.ca.

Property Research - Document Sourcing
The property database provides for both indexed searches and the retrieval of complete documents. These include land deeds, mortgages, and similar instruments, which often provide significant genealogical information going beyond the specific property details. You may already know the year, book # and page # of the document you wish to purchase.  If not, the first step to obtaining a document is searching the index.  Once you have received the index listing (see above), you can select one or more documents from the index to purchase. 
 
Please send an email to queries@novascotiaancestors.ca with the details of the document once you have made your purchase.
