A Registry of Deeds had been established at Yarmouth, NS as early as 1771, but for whatever reason a number of deeds continued to be registered at either Liverpool or Shelburne after this date.

ATCHA holds a brief description of most Yarmouth County Deeds recorded in both Liverpool and Shelburne. These descriptions will be found in the "Argyle Municipality Deeds Project", compiled by Ann Sorensen and the late George Sorensen.
