Civil birth registrations were recorded in Nova Scotia between 1864 and 1876 and are held by the Nova Scotia Archives. Delayed registrations for births were filed from 1876 to 1908. However, not everyone registered. Province-wide recording of civil births began again on January 1, 1909. Birth records are retained by the Vital Statistics office for a period of 100 years.
 
Civil death registrations were recorded in Nova Scotia between 1864 and 1876. Civil death registration began again on October 1, 1908. The Nova Scotia Archives has death records of persons who died before 1965. The office of Vital Statistics has all death records for a period of 50 years.
