Can anyone tell me about my grandfather James Hayward and his father who were born in Happy Adventure? Where in England did they migrate from,and were they fisherman before or servants? I know nothing of my grandfather or great grandfather, on my fathers side, and would like to know much more. We are married to Browns,related to the Powell family, know the Turners and are related to the Matchims. firstname.lastname@example.org I think highly of the sight.

I have traveled in Newfoundland and read The Downhomer, and am looking for sources for a 1,000-word article on Newfoundland in 1940s. There's an excellent novel but I forget the title. Headed back to Corner Brook in July.

Very interesting and enlightening. I am a born Newfoundlander who am happy to find this history. A Portuguese I met on the web helped a lot. Thank you, Jose.

We send you our sincerest sympathy on the tragic accident off your shores last Thursday morning. We felt we were physically with you this morning at St. Giles, Ottawa when our congregational prayers remembered you. We still remember the warm welcome your minister, David Sutherland gave us in your parking lot in September, 2007 as we looked for directions and his invitation to come the following Sunday, which we did and again we received a warm welcome at the post-service greeting. The sermon that morning was about the "ninety and nine" - how fitting to think of this morning to remember those dear souls lost at sea and a city in mourning.
Sincerely, Charles and Lorna Glennie.

Your article on "The Kirk" in St. John's contains an error. Talking about the history of the fine organ there, it says:" 1961 the firm of Letourneau...". While the last major work was done by LeTourneau, the 1961 rebuild was done by the English firm of Hill, Norman and Beard. Thanks for your fantastic work!

Great web site. My father was stationed in Newfoundland during the war and had nothing but great things to say about the town and its people. I hope to visit soon. Thanks.

I was looking up the Ode To Newfoundland and found your wonderful website. I lived in the Codroy Valley for seven years before moving to Maine.

Great information on avalanches however you've missed a major slide that would have happened around 1985 in Labrador City on Smokey Mountain. I know because I was a member of the racing team that was completely buried. Luckily we all survived but it was a big slide that had to have the cornice blasted away. And of note, it was in bounds on the ski hill.

The web site needs the section on avalanches, rockfalls and landslides updated and hopefully, we will soon be able to provide this information. In the mean time, you can find data on the Smokey Mountain Avalanche on the NL Government Web Site at: http://www.nr.gov.nl.ca/mines&en/geosurvey/disasters/ avalanches/jan15_1985.stm
Thank you for your comment. It is appreciated.
