Genealogy

History of Inverness County, Nova Scotia: Website

A rich and inspired resource that I have found for this county has been the book entitled "History of Inverness County, Nova Scotia" By J. L. MacDougall (1922).  This book was an undertaking initiated by decree of the Municipal Council in Inverness, and was an attemt to publish what information was known about the history of the people in this county, despite the lack of records.  While there is no promise that this book is without error, the book was published in the early 1900s, which means that, at the least, memories of these people were not quite so long past as are now.  Also, geaneological information for the time period immediatley preceeding the creation of this book is most likely very accurate.  This book can give some valuble insight into the history (Chapters 1-5 especially) and families (Chapter 6 especially) of Inverness County and can help one sort through the myriad of possible relatives found in the census and other records that do exist for this county.
