Nova Scotia, Canada – newspapers

** Use the right mouse button to open the files in another tab or window.**

I watched a History Channel YouTube story about the Dec 6, 1917 ship explosion in Halifax and I posted about it on Face Book. I also found and joined a Nova Scotia genealogy group so that I could post the 90 minute video on it.  Many people commented on the FB post, telling us about their connection to the 1917 explosion, so I thought I would check my “Google News Archive” collection and see what newspapers I had for Nova Scotia.

I found a folder with the Canadian newspaper collection and in the list I was able to find these newspaper from Nova Scotia.

I’ve brought up each of these links twice and they all worked for me. I put a link on the newspaper name so you can click on it, or you can copy the http link and get to the newspaper that way.

If you need help useing the individual newspapers you can view the blog “How To Work with Google News” to get help in navigating these old newspaper.

I found a newspaper that carried the explosion story and thought I would post it here along with all these other Nova Scotia newspaper even though it is from Montreal. https://news.google.com/newspapers?id=0zIjAAAAIBAJ&sjid=j4UFAAAAIBAJ&pg=2005%2C2215598
