The Nova Scotia naval office lists have been reproduced in sequence as far as possible; however, some lists have been lost over the years and a complete range was not available. Alternative sources can supplement these lists, notably lists of shipping compiled by customs officials and those noted in the newspapers of Halifax. In wartime references to ship movements vanish from the newspapers and other sources have been sought by historians to fill these gaps. In the case of the war of the American Revolution, 'Appendix C' of the Report of the Board of Trustees of the Public Archives of Nova Scotia for the Year ended 30th November, 1936 notes ships entering Halifax harbour from 4 July 1778 through to 15 November 1781. These shipping lists cover the ports of Halifax, Cumberland, Canso, Sydney, Arichat, Louisbourg, Main a Dieu and of St John, New Brunswick.
