Lynch families of Nova Scotia in the vicinity of Hants County - Ottawa Research.
Family File Report, August 2000 by Fred Gilligan


I have recently spent some time at the Canadian National Library and Archives researching my LYNCH ancestors from Newport Township, Hants County. I have compiled my data as a text document, and presented my findings here for the use of others visiting the Hants County, Nova Scotia GenWeb Project. My Ottawa research details all the LYNCH information which I could find about LYNCH families in the vicinity of Hants County from the late 1700's to the late 1800's that is available in the library and archives. I am sure my search was not exhaustive, but I offer up what I have found.
