Hello Folks! I'm originally from Montreal, now living in Victoria BC. My family and I have relatives in Newfoundland that we have never met. They lived on Bell Island, and some of the family were iron miners. My grandmother, Sarah Lahey, moved to Montreal in the early 1920's. She got a job in service, when she arrived. Her Family in Newfoundland was quite big; 12 - 7 boys and 5 girls my Mom thinks - brothers, Robert, Richard, Edward.... One married a Murphy. Sarah's sister "Mary", or "Mona", married a Desantis, and also went to Montreal, where she worked in a hospital in the Verdun area.

My wife and I are planning to visit the Rock this year and a couple of my sisters plan to meet us. It sure would be fantastic to meet some of our Family. Is there a bulletin board or a web-site where my request might be posted? Any information you are able to give me would be much appreciated.

much appreciate any help


Gene
