About the Moss Diary

In 1918 Joseph Moss began to keep a record of deaths in Springhill, Nova Scotia. He included most deaths that occurred in the town as well as the names and death dates of many native Springhillers who died elsewhere. Here and there he added brief identifying notes. A few world leaders such as President Franklin Roosevelt and Prime Minister MacKenzie King were included in the list as were several internationally known union leaders and members of the clergy who had served Springhill churches. The diary records contain over 5000 entries, and cover the period from 1918 to 1976.

An extension of the original Moss Diary, adding 1977-2000 genealogical data, is now available in print format. The CD-ROM Second Edition combines all of the data from 1918-2000.


We can also supply copies of the two printed editions. The same price applies to both the CD-ROM and each of the print editions.
