Hello from Toronto! Over the past few years, I was surprised to discover through my paternal great-grandfather's Irish heritage that he has distant descendants in Newfoundland through his mother's niece, Bridget Kelligar Cullen, who settled with her husband Thomas (1867-1927) and up to 8 children sometime between 1905 and 1921, when they appear in the census in St. John's West.

Driscoll Family Line

I'm having trouble finding out the birth dates of my ggrandfather Lawrence Redmond & ggrandmother Catherine Driscoll. (Circa 1850) I have found info on my ggggrandfather Cornelius Driscoll (Birthdate 1805) and ggggrandmother Sarah Madden or Eleanor Duggan. Cornelius married twice.

My DNA confirmed 2 ancestor links to Newfoundland
Hi, thank you for accepting me to your forum. I am currently trying to find one of my ancestors who left England. I discovered one, Nichodemus Crocker who was my 4x GGrandfathers brother from Hazelbury Bryan, Dorset. The other is really hiding, I’m 75% from the South Coast of England, so there are so many common names. I do know that my DNA link is from Sops Island. Hoping to find some clues. Thanks. Jan Cowan

Hi everyone.
I'm putting together our family tree. As is often the case with Newfoundland families, our families are often large, with a dozen children, or more. I am one of 12 kids.
I'm at an absolute dead-end in one branch of my tree. Searching for my dad's father. My dad was John Francis Brown, born in Bacon Cove/Kitchuses Newfoundland in 1931, to an unwed mom. His birth certificate does not state the fathers name.
