Wanted: Event Coordinator!

Would you like to be involved in the decision making at GANS? Do you have a knack for planning great events?  We still need to fill the Event Coordinator volunteer position on the Executive. At the moment, most of the events are already set in place, allowing the Event Coordinator to settle slowly and easily into the position. If you are interested, please attach your resume or give a brief description on your background and why the position would be of interest to you and email info@novascotiaancestors.ca. All interested parties will receive a response!
 
 
 



Nova Scotia Ancestors Certificate

The Genealogy Association of Nova Scotia is very pleased to offer the Nova Scotia Ancestors certificate as a way to honour your direct line ancestors. While the confederation of Canada did not occur until 1867, the Mi’kmaq peoples were living in what is now Nova Scotia for 10,000 years. The first European settlers, the French, established a permanent settlement in 1605, North America’s first. The certificate honours those who lived in Nova Scotia at any time before July 1, 1867. Proof of the direct lineage is required.  
 
For further information, prices and an example of how to display the certificate, please refer to the NS Ancestors Certificate page.



 
All GANS operations are carried out by volunteers, including publications, membership renewals, workshops and website maintenance. Your patience is appreciated, when expecting responses to queries.
