Nova Scotia Historical Vital Statistics


Recently I started a Facebook page called Genealogy & Historical Databases. It is a place where others can post links to websites that contain databases containing genealogy and/or historical information. Pamela Wile is one of my Facebook friends who lives in the Halifax, Nova Scotia area. She is also the Programme Convener for the Genealogical Association of Nova Scotia. She posted a great link that I would like to share with you: Nova Scotia Historical Vital Statistics.

Nova Scotia is Canada's second-smallest province in area after Prince Edward Island. The province's mainland is the Nova Scotia peninsula surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. Nova Scotia has a lot of history, but I have a personal connection to it as well. One of my ancestors on my paternal line, Adam Fralick, settled in Canada. Adam Fralick was a Loyalist captain in Orangeburg, South Carolina during the American Revolution who took refuge in Nova Scotia. So, when I hear of a great database for this area, I go there to see what is available.

I was very excited when I did a search of Fralick and 6 pages came up for Fralick birth, marriages and deaths; digitized copies of the original documents. You can also order a copy for your records from this website. From their web page, here are a couple questions about this great website:

  1. What are these records and why are they called Historical Vital Statistics?These are the records resulting from the legal requirement to register all births, marriages and deaths occurring in Nova Scotia. The records for these life-events are known as 'Vital Statistics' and have been collected in the province, with varying degrees of compliance and completeness, since 1864. The modern record-keeping era dates from 1908, after which time the records are more complete. They are called 'Historical Vital Statistics' because so much time has elapsed since their creation and life-span that they have been released into the public domain.
  2. 2) What Historical Vital Statistics for Nova Scotia are available on this Website? Births, 1864-1877, 1908-1911
    Delayed Births late registrations for individuals born 1830-1911
    Marriages, 1763-1864, 1864-1936
    Deaths, 1864-1877, 1908-1961

You can find out what data they have here:
