Family history
Hi There, I've just registered to the site.
I just came across my grandmother's birth certificate, all of sudden the background info I thought was gone is now possible to track down. I am looking for information on the Turner family of Lower Island Cove. In the course of 3 generations her line has gone from the east coast to the west coast, making the family literally a family of Canada.
Anybody who can help me out, or send me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate hearing...
