Nova Scotia Archives & Records Management
(formerly Public Archives of Nova Scotia)

The Nova Scotia Archives & Records Management (NSARM) acquires, maintains and makes available for use, government and private records of lasting historical or administrative value. The Archives' holdings consist of correspondence, manuscripts, journals, newspapers, books, photographs, documentary art, maps, architectural plans, sound and moving image materials. The Archives serves government officials, genealogists, academics and students, historians, the media, editors and publishers, and interested members of the public.

The following civil (government) registrations for the province are held by the Nova Scotia Archives & Records Management:

The registration of births and deaths was not mandatory, so that those holdings are incomplete.

Photostatic transcripts of these entries are provided upon receipt of $ 10.00 per entry, pre-paid by cheque or money order. Certified copies (official extract of information from the record, plus a photostatic copy of the record) will be provided upon receipt of $ 20.00 per entry, pre-paid.
