GANS Now Offers Findmypast!


The Genealogical Association of Nova Scotia is excited about our new partnership with Findmypast!
With your 2016 GANS membership renewal or a new membership, you will be able to subscribe to Findmypast at a 50% discount!  Yes, that is correct! A full year subscription for only $8.31 US/month rather than the regular price of $16.63. Just one more perk of being a GANS member!
Findmypast has over two billion historical records from around the world, including the full US federal census from 1790 to 1940! New and often rare and exclusive records are added daily. Both Canadian and US records are included. Searching through millions of newspaper articles is quick and easy with a powerful and flexible search option.  Findmypast includes an easy-to-use family tree.
