RC Baptisms & Marriages
King's Cove, Bonavista Bay

(Partial)

 

These baptisms are taken from the Roman Catholic records of King’s Cove, Bonavista Bayas transcribed by Vivian Sullivan. We greatly appreciate Vivian’s hard work and valuable contribution which is sure to be a great source of information for anyone researching the families listed here.  

I have taken the records and grouped them as families rather than just listing them by year of baptism. In some instances there are differences in spelling of names but they appear to be of the same family. Also it will be noted that in some instances nicknames were used in place of actual given names of parents or sponsors at the time of a child’s baptism.

Where possible I have included the marriage data for couples who are the parents of the children listed here. Where noted the marriage data is taken from records submitted by Jeri Keough who collected the records from PANL. Many thanks to Jeri for such a valuable contribution which helps to make some of the families “more complete”.  Most certainly another great source information for all family researchers .

If anyone can add to any of the data for these families I would be appreciate hearing from you.
