Newfoundland Church Society Reports
Listed by District
For a description of the beginnings and early activities of this group,
please refer to an excellent article (Description of the Newfoundland School
Society) in the Encyclopedia of Newfoundland
Please remember a couple of important points. First
of all, the individuals listed in the reports had donated throughout the year,
and the date does not necessarily mean that those individuals lived in the
towns listed, nor were alive at the official date of the report. However, there
is a good chance that people listed were still alive at the time of the report
living in the towns listed. Secondly, these lists by no means included all
towns in existance at their time of publication. Nor were they a comprehensive
listing for people living in the towns listed, like a directory or census might
be. They only list the individuals who donated something to the society. Therefore,
if you don't find an individual you are looking for, don't despair. It might
mean that he could not, or had not donated to the society.
Important: The date listed in the index is the
date the report was published. The reports normally covered the previous
school year. Therefore, the report does not mean that an individual listed
in the report was living in that town on the date of the report, but rather
in that town sometime in the previous year or so. These reports
have been made possible by the work of over 2 dozen people at the cost of
a great deal of time and money. Special
thanks are extended to these great peopl This project was
conceived of, and headed by Michael Cooper If you discover any errors
as to the districts that communities are assigned to, please contact me,
