It’s been over a month since Blaine Whipple informed me that Nova Scotia has put their birth, marriage and death (BMD) records online. Many Whipples migrated to the Maritime Provinces during America’s colonial period. If your relatives lived in Nova Scotia, check out Nova Scotia Historical Vital Statistics (https://novascotiagenealogy.com/).
As of July 2012, the following are available online:
- Births (270,982 records):
- 1864-1877, 1908-1911
- (delayed registrations 1830-1911)
- Marriages (227,272 records):
- Bonds 1763-1864
- Registrations 1864-1936
- Deaths (435,143 records)
- 1865-1877, 1908-1961
- City of Halifax, 1890-1908
More recent records than the above (births 1912-present, marriages 1937-present, deaths 1962-present) must be requested directly from Vital Statistics, Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations.
