KITH is leading work to preserve and digitize the A. F. Church Historical Maps. These topographical maps were developed between 1865 and 1888, one for each county of Nova Scotia. They constitute a unique dataset where the dwelling of each home is marked as a dot, and the first initial and last name of the resident is written into the empty space beside it.
We have done considerable work now on the Antigonish, Hants, and Halifax county maps, and have started matching the individual dwellings on these maps to the relevant Canadian Census. Eventually, access to the maps will be available online to the general public.
