My great grandfather was named William Thistle. He was born in 1891 in Newfoundland and moved to Chelsea Massachusetts as a child. He lived with his mother, Clara Allen but I find no evidence of his father James Thistle.
If anybody could help me find a connection to the Thistles in Newfoundland it would be greatly appreciated.

Thomas Roche b. 1901? Torbay, younger brother John, Emigrate

Yes, yes, I'm looking for information about Tomas Roche from Torbay around the turn of the century. Long story short - he is a grandfather I never knew, the family broke up early around 1932-4 in New York. My Mother, grandmother and aunt returned to Bay Bulls to live with family.

Thomas had a younger brother John.... mother any father were perhaps named Thomas and Elizabeth.... Elizabeth may have been a Goss(e).

My mother is still alive but her memory is not...

Natives family's in Newfoundland
Can anyone tell me how you can find info on natives in Newfoundland? I have heard that my great grandmother was native but is unable to confirm this info. She was about 1866. I can be reached at

Looking to find more information about my father's side of the family. I did not grow up with my father so I do not know much about his side. As a young adult I have reached out to extended family but they do not have a lot of information as most family was still in NFL and my grandparents had moved to Toronto, ON. I do not know much about my grandfather - Joseph William Farrell born in the early 1920's. I believe his father was Arthur Farrell and his mother was Mary Earles
