The port city of Halifax in Nova Scotia has historically been known as a primary gateway for immigrants from around the world to come to Canada, seeking a new life in the new world. Over 1 million British immigrants came through Halifax in the last century.
Staff from the province of Nova Scotia, including members of the archives team, will be at Who Do You Think You Are Live in London, to help people trace their roots in Nova Scotia, and to see if relatives passed through Pier 21 during the 20th century.
Located on the East Coast of Canada, Nova Scotia is a traveller’s dream, with over 4,700 miles of coastline, majestic seascapes, beautiful bays, mirror-still coves, and more than 100 breath-taking beaches. Nova Scotia is truly a haven for wildlife.
But Nova Scotia is more than spectacular scenery. The bounty of the land and ocean keep great traditional cuisine alive, and inspire new contemporary tastes from a beach-side lobster boil to vineyard tours. And the music of the province has been defined by the spirit of the people; from the ancient beat of the Mi’kmag drum, to the foot tapping rhythms of the Celtic and Acadian fiddle, you cannot escape the effect that Nova Scotia will have on your soul.
