Cumberland County Genweb

Directories

A list of printed directories microfilmed at the Nova Scotia Archives. Not as complete as a census record, they may list less than 10% of the individuals in the county although later years appear to list a greater percentage. Still, useful to find out details of occupation or place of residence for those that do appear.
