As discussed in my earlier article, while Court Records are not created for the use of genealogists, they can still be a very useful resource. Published Court decisions vary widely in the amount of detail that they provide, as the presenation of the facts is secondary to a discussion of the relevant legal principles.
The following list of burials in various Nova Scotia cemeteries, 1946-2006, has been derived from published Court decisions; usually wrongful death actions and contested estates. No further updates or additions are anticipated.
A related page exists for Ontario burials, 1880-2014.
Please note that I am NOT actively researching any of these individuals or families, and so I am unable to do look-ups or provide any additional information on the persons listed here. I am also unable to provide copies of the original Court decisions.
