NSROOTS is designed to be a medium of exchange for genealogical information pertaining to Nova Scotian families and is moderated.
The nsroots list is "open", which means that anyone can send a query or message to firstname.lastname@example.org without being subscribed or from an E-mail account different from the one under which they are subscribed. As long as the message concerns genealogy in Nova Scotia it will be forwarded to the subscribers.
The list is sponsored by The Nova Scotia Genealogy Network Association.
The nsroots list is available to anyone with an Internet E-mail account. There is no charge for the service and it can be cancelled at any time.
The nsroots messages may also be received in the form of a daily digest.
There is a searchable archive of nsroots messages available at
The nsroots list operates courtesy of the Nova Scotia Department of Education's ITS division.
