Ancestry's Canadian Bonanza: Nova Scotia

After a long quiet period the flood gates have burst with 16 new Canadian databases now accessible on Ancestry for Alberta, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.

Nova Scotia is already well served on Ancestry with records from the Provincial Archives. The addition is:
Nova Scotia, Canada, Antigonish Catholic Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials, 1823-1905, with 273,570 records.

The records are sourced from the Catholic Diocese Of Antigonish and images are via FamilySearch. Earlier registers are written in familiar paragraph format, while later registers are typically pre-printed forms with information filled in by hand.
