This is only a starting point for researching your family history along Newfoundlands southcoast, to include Burgeo - La Polie, Hermitage, Fortune Bay and Burin. In order for this to work I'll need input from you. I'll attempt to post materials here that may prove useful when they become available to me and time permits.
