Volunteers for Executive Positions Open

Would you like to be involved in the decision making at GANS? Do you have a minimum of 3-5 hours a month free to volunteer? Due to circumstances beyond our control, three very important positions are now vacant at GANS. We are in immediate need for someone to fill the Treasurer, Vice-President and Events Coordinator positions. Please indicate your intention to serve on one of these positions, include your resume or a brief description on your background and why the position would be of interest to you and send to info@novascotiaancestors.ca. All interested parties will receive a response!
 



Welcome New Members!

During our 4-day 1867 membershp blitz we welcomed over 30 new members! We sincerely thank you for taking advantage of this membership sale for the remainder of the year.  We hope you enjoy what we have to offer in our members only area and take advantage of the membership surname lists. You will be receiving monthly copies of our newsletter "The Living Connection" as well as copies of the NSG as they are published and back issues of both of our serials. If you have any questions, please direct them to info@novascotiaancestors.ca.



Nova Scotia Ancestors Certificate

The Genealogy Association of Nova Scotia is very excited to offer you an option to apply for a Nova Scotia Ancestors Certificate. This announcement goes hand in hand with Canada 150. You must prove that your ancestor resided in Nova Scotia prior to Confederation in 1867.
 
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.
