Genealogy Centre

The Research & Genealogy Centre of the Annapolis Heritage Society is located at the O’Dell House Museum. Its primary emphasis is on Annapolis Royal and the old townships which were adjacent to Annapolis Royal: Granville, Annapolis, Wilmot and Clements. It also covers the early Acadian settlements prior to 1755.

The Centre has significant collections of genealogies, local histories, cemetery and probate records, old scrapbooks, microfilms of vital statistics for Annapolis and Digby counties, church records, deeds and maps, and other pertinent information for researchers.

Genealogy/ research is available by appointment all year.
