Since the establishment of the Society, 44 volumes of the Society’s Collections have been published. In 1998, the Society began publication of the Journal of the Royal Nova Scotia Historical Society, a successor to both the Collections and the Nova Scotia Historical Review. It is published once a year, and Society members each receive a copy of the Journal as well as notification of the Society’s yearly lecture series and general meetings.
See PUBLICATIONS for further details.
The Royal Nova Scotia Historical Society is a voluntary organization that operates without an office or paid staff. We are unable to do historical or genealogical research for you or to care for material you may wish to donate to an archival repository. The Nova Scotia Archives may be helpful and you can contact them at email@example.com.
