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.
