Some of My Favourite Genealogy Websites

Leslie Crowell Family Tree. My family tree loaded on World Connect.

St. Margaret’s Cemetery. My friend Lynda and I transcribed this cemetery in the late 90s.

Genealogy Association of Nova Scotia.  I am currently on the GANS Executive, so have to give this site my first plug! Membership is only $39/yr Cdn and with it you get an amazing amount of access to their Members Only Area, which includes the ability to search the 1838 census.

Automated Genealogy.  Indices to Canadian Censuses. I like its delivery and ease of use. The following is their site description. Corrections are shown.

"Automated Genealogy hosts several projects to index Canadian censuses. Over the last several years Library and Archives Canada has digitized their microfilms of the original census forms for several of the Canadian censuses and Automated Genealogy has organized volunteers to produce indices to the people enumerated in these censuses. Each project uses simple web forms to allow volunteers to transcribe census data from the images into a database, with the entered data being immediately available on the site. Following transcription further volunteers proofread and make corrections. Anyone with an internet connection can participate as a transcriber, proofreader, or just by submitting corrections as they use the site. The status of each census project varies depending on how long it has been active. There is a link to the LAC image of the original census page at the top of each transcribed census page."

They cover in full and part the years, 1851, 1852, 1901, 1906, 1911, 1951, 1952. They also have other indexing projects. What a busy bunch they are!

Nova Scotia Historical Vital Statistics.  This is my go to place for NS vital stats. You can search by marriage, birth or death. They cover some areas as far back as 1763 and as current as 1964.

Dwayne Meisner’s website. You do have to be a member to access but membership is free!  I copied his description from the Nova Scotia Genealogy Facebook site that Dwayne monitors.

On my site, I host the following records (be sure to read to the end):
Nova Scotia Census Records

The Chronicle Herald Death Index 1961-1992

FindAGrave.com. I often have great luck finding where my US ancestors are buried as well as their descendants (my distant or not so distant cousins). I even find live connections from this site.
