Birth

The common name considered to be fact will lead the vital record, followed by source information. The name, location and all other information found on the document will be spelt as it appears.

Links to the sources are noted at the bottom of the page to check causes of death and to double-check the transcription. Although I strive for accuracy, I am prone to making human errors.

Alphabetical Birth Records Search

I began alphabetically searching the vital records at Nova Scotia Genealogy a short time ago. What I do is put one letter in the surname field (such as A), leave the given name field blank and choose Halifax County. All the births that took place in Harrigan Cove, Lower Quoddy, Newdy Quoddy, Smith Cove, Necum Teuch, Bay of Islands and anything that looks similar in name to these communities are transcribed.

A search of this type will reveal records that might not otherwise be found by conventional methods. For example, Joshua Ansell Turner was indexed as Joshua Ansell. The person indexing mistakenly used his middle name as his surname.

Below is the list of names already completed, showing my progress.
