Ancestry adds Nova Scotia, Canada, Petitions in Favour of Female Suffrage, 1918

A new Canadian database from Ancestry. It's just 3,865 records — the only Canadian addition to Ancestry in 2019.

The Nova Scotia Archives digitized the petition for its centennial   https://novascotia.ca/archives/suffrage/. Ancestry search results link to an image of the original at the Nova Scotia Archives website.

On April 26, 1918 legislation was passed granting women in Nova Scotia the right to vote.
