Nova Scotia Historical Newspapers Digitization Initiative
The Public Archives of Nova Scotia has just released The Acadian Recorder and the The Liverpool Transcript newspapers on the internet.
The Acadian Recorder (1813 to 1853) was a Halifax weekly, and it printed local, national, and international stories.
The Liverpool Transcript was published in the town of Liverpool on the province’s south shore (1854-1867), and I am interested in this paper because it printed shipping news – who owned what ships – and I am looking for my ancestors who owned ships in Shelburne around the same time that the newspaper was printed.
If you wish to read these newspapers (they are not indexed), go to http://gov.ns.ca/nsarm/virtual/newspapers
