Lovell's 1871 Directories for Newfoundland



In an effort to provide more comprehensive source information by Project Lovell's volunteers have devoted their time and efforts to collect, transcribe and post to the web for the benefit of genealogists, the complete Lovell's 1871 Directory for Newfoundland.

This document contains heads of households for virtually all communities in Newfoundland for the year 1871. Although in it's origin it was a commercial publication, it has become a primary source of information used by genealogists in tracing their family history. This used in conjunction with other resource material such as the 1921 Census, the McAlpine's 1898 and 1904 Directories and Hutchensons 1864-65 Directory prove a starting point for anyone doing family histories. What sets Lovell's apart from the other directories is that it provides a discription of the community and the population of a community.

Since this is an ongoing project the directories will be posted as they become avaliable, if your specific community is not here please check back from time to time, it should appear.

Project Lovell's can be accessed in one of two ways:

Lovell's Directory also contained additional information about the colony at the time of the survey, such as St. John's general and city miscellaneous notes, and a list of all ferry and mail routes that existsed in the colony in 1871.
