LDS and Nova Scotia Church Records

The LDS Church is making available church records for the Anglican, Baptist, Roman Catholic, Presbyterian, and United Church of England denominations.

As their website says, "The Public Archives of Nova Scotia has many original church registers as well as microfilm copies. The Protestant registers generally cover 1780–1914. There are Catholic records 1679–1914. A list of these holdings can be found in Genealogical Research in Nova Scotia, by Terrence M. Punch.

Parish registers of baptisms, marriages, deaths and other records for some Catholic and Church of England in Canada parishes from Nova Scotia. These records cover 1720-2001, and dates vary for each parish. Some parish registers are written in French or Latin".

They have put on a Wiki to explain the church records, and Citation for This Collection.
