Search McAlpine's 1907-08 Nova Scotia Directory for Colchester Co. Residents
Extractions by Lisa D. Petersen, Search Script by Rick Hagen
McAlpine's Publishing Company, Ltd., of Halifax, Nova Scotia, published a
city directory for Nova Scotia in 1908. I have extracted more than 7500 names from
over 150 towns in Colchester County, and have made them searchable by surname,
given names or town. Most of the names in the directory are men, but some
women are listed as business owners, employees or widows. Although many given
names are abbreviated, I have made searching them possible for those researchers
who might be looking for an unusual name. Sometimes relationships are given in the
directory, e.g. "McNutt Chas (S son)" and "Archibald Jane, wid Wm C." Some
residents from other than Colchester Co. are listed, e.g. Schubenacadie (Hants Co).
The directory gives more detail about the residences of those living in the towns
of Truro and Londonderry by listing either "h" for home or "bds" for boards, and
then the street name or full address. This provides clues as to the relationships
between the people living at the same address - the one whose "home" is at the
address is most likely the head-of-household, while those who board there are
often children, other relatives, or unrelated boarders. There are many abbreviations
in this directory - some intuitive, some not - but unfortunately, the directory did
not define any of abbreviations used, so none are provided here.
