Hi, My name is Margaret Thomas and I am looking for information on my Grandmother Mary Bridget Lee (b 1892) St John's NF. She left NF age (15-20) for Boston Ma (USA).

Hello Margaret,
I did a search through some St. John's Roman Catholic church records online and did not find a birth/bapt record for Mary Bridget...although the surname Lee was often seen for others.
Failing that, I went through the provincial birth registrations and have the following for you to consider. I have enclosed the link and a Mary Bridget's birth is recorded at line #38...second from the bottom of the page.
In case this link won't open here are the details...Nov. 1, 1891 Mary Bridget Lee...born to Henry and Ellen Lee of River Head...Roman Catholic...baptised Nov. 5, 1891 by Rev. V. F. Reardon...
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... :144849501
I realize that neither the place of birth or date is an exact match to your query. That's what makes family research so frustrating and so much fun at the same time.

Hello again Margaret,
The birth/bapt record for Mary Bridget is also transcribed on this Newfoundland's Grand Banks site. It gives her mother Ellen's maiden name as Daley and the sponsors names are there as well. The records are from the Baptism Register of the Catholic Assumptions of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish 1844 - 1899. This parish would have covered River Head. When you open the link just scroll down to her birth date.

Glad to have found this for you.
