Step 2. Obtain a marriage record for your ancestor.

For years before about 1908, use microfilmed marriage records. Microfilmed vital records of marriages for Nova Scotia are available from about 1760 to 1908 or later.

To obtain records of marriages after 1908 to 1918 (depending on the county):

1. Write or call Nova Scotia Vital Statistics to obtain a current copy of the application form.
2. Fill out the form as completely as possible with as much information as you know, including the year the marriage occurred, and your relationship to the person whose record you want.
3. Return the application with the required fee, plus a photocopy of your driver's license or other picture identification.
If Nova Scotia Vital Statistics finds the record and it is not restricted, they will send the information to you.
