Trying to find he birthplace of a great grandfather
To anyone who can help:

My great grandfather, James Hoke, is buried in Joe Batt's Arm Roman Catholic Cemetery. The records there indicate that he lived from 1850 to 1904. My question is where was he born and how do I find out, e.g. sources for records, etc.

In the family, there is a story that he came over from England or Ireland. If he was not born in Newfoundland/Labrador, I would then shift my focus to trying to find the fishing schooner on which he sailed, port of...

Hi from Florida
Hello and thank you for accepting my registration request.
I am doing family research of my maternal grandmother's side of the family. She was Anna Josephine Gushue, daughter of Charles and Gushue and Mary Whelan, born in Bacon Cove. There are so many Gushue's I am having a hard time verifying her siblings.
I enjoy browsing Grand Banks and learning about Newfoundland.
Living in Florida, I often look at pictures of Newfoundland and wish I was there, feeling the cool ocean wind,...

GRACE and MCGRATH families - looking for help and any inform
Good day to everyone! My name is Sandra Wilson and I just signed up on the message board today. I am actively researching my maternal great grandparents. They lived in Colliers, Newfoundland. Margaret McGrath (1863-1949) I believe was born in St. Johns and passed away in Colliers. Edward Grace (do not know) I found a will that he did in the early 1900 but do not have a birth or death date from him. He may not have been born in Newfoundland. If anyone has any information on these two...

Newly registered but long-time guest
Have been visiting this site for a while and found it contains a wealth of information for Newfoundland genealogy.
Good job all!
Hope to find a few nuggets for my family tree research in my future visits.
My name is Anne and I'm looking for information on my family that came from St. Brendan's. I know my grandparents but am looking for the generation before them. Your website has been extremely helpful and it's so amazing that it's free. The challenge that I've been having is that the generation I'm looking for is from the 1840's and 50's and the documentation stops just before going back there. Thanks to everyone for all the hard work organizing these records!!

From what I have learned Emma was illegitimate, and her mother passed away when she was very young and Emma was adopted. Emma had a brother, Thomas Bath who adopted...

Hello and Greetings from North Island New Zealand
I am originally from Dorset, South of England, hence my username here. I am building my family tree and now at a point where I need to explore my Canadian connections. In particular NF and the Grand Banks area. Many years ago a Great Aunt of mine told me of a family member who once his time was completed in the British Navy, Left Bristol UK and headed to NF to marry a girl he had fallen for. This would probably be late 18th to early 19th centuries. Sadly at 17 years old my head was full of fast...
