About the South Shore Genealogical Society

The South Shore Genealogical Society (SSGS) works on genealogy in Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia.  Our offices are located on the third floor in the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic in Lunenburg, NS.

The SSGS is a not-for-profit, volunteer organization which is committed to:

        ·    Identify, search out, collect, preserve, copy, organize, any and all information regarding genealogical research on the South Shore area of Nova Scotia, Canada; this includes church records, family records, family genealogies, books, micro-films, land records, wills, deeds, death records, etc.

        ·    Make available all information we possess to all people searching out their ancestral lines.

        ·    Conduct workshops, which teach how to accomplish this research and be an influence to all others to keep the necessary records so we remember who we are as a people.
