Research Support
As more people have become involved in genealogy and as increasing numbers of records have been digitized, there has arisen a need for research support: researchers hit a dead end, it is too far to get to the research location, the difficulty of the assignment requires assistance, and people just run out of time.
 
GANS is now offering a full range of research services to provide support: 
 
Lookup Services
Obituaries 
Query Services 
Property Research
Consulting Services
 
A description of each available service is below.

Look Up Services
A “lookup” is a specific request to find out whether we have information on a particular person in a particular database or publication we have, and to provide that information if we do. This is a common form of inquiry at the moment.
Member Lookup $4.00
Non-Member Lookup $6.00

Obituaries
Obituaries are a form of look-up, but it goes beyond the particular datasets we currently have. We have an Obituary Index from the Chronicle-Herald for the period 1961-1999 with about 500,000 records. Liz Andrews’ team has been scanning and connecting the actual obituaries to this index and now have about 30,000 records completed. An order for one of the obituaries we already have is easy to complete. An order for one of the other records requires research on our part. We are charging the same fee, whether we have it or not.
Member Lookup $4.00
Non-Member Lookup $6.00

Query Services
A “query” is still specific to a particular person, but doesn’t have a solution about where to look it up. It might, for instance, be a question about a burial location without any detailed information on the date of death. The solution requires a greater degree of experience and initiative than a “lookup”.

The first step to obtaining a document is searching the index.
Members – Index Listing with First Name, Last Name & County $8.00
Non-Members -Index Listing with First Name, Last Name & County $10.00

Where information is incomplete, charges are for time + index price. If your information is incomplete, email queries@novascotiaancestors.ca.
