Hello, first of all I want to say, from the photos I have seen, I can't wait to visit Newfoundland. And I will visit, but first I need to know, if anyone out there has any info on the descendants of a Theodore Roosevelt Howell, who resided in Wesleyville, years ago, and left for the US as a teenager. He had two brothers that I know of named William, and George, and his parents names were, (Im not sure about the spelling) Abram, and Winsor, or it could be Abraham and Windsor. Theodore Howell was my grandfather, and he died a while back, and my mother and I would like to know if he had any living relatives. All my life I can remember my mother wanting to visit the place where her father came from. I would like to make that dream of hers come true, and I plan on bringing her there some day soon. And after the photos and info I have seen, It is a dream of mine now. Please, if anyone knows anyone with the Howell surname, ask them about these names, if they have any of these names in their history. Thank You, P Swartz

My grandfather, Alfred James Strickland was from Westpoint. He married a woman from Rose Blanche emigrated to Boston (Billerica) MA and then moved again to Victoria BC where he was a blacksmith for the CPR coastal steamship service. It would be great to hear if this rings any bells.

I am looking for geneaology links to research my maternal grandparents, Martin and Dorcas (Piercy) Rowe of Greens Harbor. My mother, Annie Barbara Rowe, was born on June 24, 1907 at Greens Harbor, Newfoundland. She immigrated to the USA (Michigan) in the early to mid 1920's joining her older siblings Stephen and Lillian. She was employed as a live-in domestic/nanny in Highland Park, MI., a suburb of Detroit. It was here thats she met and married my father Joseph Beckham Coe of Kentucky in 1926. While it is fairly easy to research my paternal lineage I'm finding it somewhat more difficult to trace the maternal side. I know that most geneaologists are interested in the male ancestors I am equally interested in trace my mothers side which I believe immigrated from Manchester, England althiugh I don't know when that happened. I believe my Grandfather Martin was a Shipwright at Greens Harbor or somewhere along Trinity Bay. I know that my Uncle Steve was a master carpenter, a craft he said he had learned from Grandfather. I know this is, at best, a shot in the dark but if there is a Geneaology Group in the Greens Harbor area perhaps help may be forthcoming. In advance, many thanks and would love to hear from someone even if its a negative response. Again thank you, George J. Coe

I'm working on a Master's thesis on Bideford, North Devon in the 1680s and must congratulate you on a well-structured, informative site - the sense of the tempo of life which the fishing economy created is clearly conveyed. My actual thesis focuses on a witch trial in Bideford in 1682, so I was intrigued to find that there were trading links between Bideford, Newfoundland and Salem, Massachusetts. What I would like to have known is whether there were any cases/prosecutions or accusations of witchcraft in Newfoundland during the seventeenth and early eighteenth century. I have come across some anthropological studies for the present day but little about the popular culture and mentalities of the early settlements.

My mother was born in 1938 in Fogo Island to John and Diadem Harvey. There were at least 13 children. John Harvey was the COnstable of Fogo. My mother was adopted by Dr. Sidney and Hattie Beckwith (my grandparents). Dr. Beckwith was the local doctor for the surrounding area from about 1937 until 1941. I am trying to find out about my Newfoundland roots and if anyone can point me in the right direction I would be most grateful as my mother passed away last year. I'm planning on coming to Newfoundland within the year. Thank you and your site is wonderful!!

Great site, however, just a comment that it would be useful if you had more information on the Federation of Newfoundland Indians with respect to your Aboriginal section. I see that you have inforamtion on the Conne River Band, you can contact the Federation of Newfoundland Indians in Newfoundland they are located in Corner Brook and the president is Brendan Sheppard...... OVerall, I loved the site, it is so nice to see a piece of my culture on the "net". Keep up the great work. Cheers, Ramona Greene

I just picked up a tapestry made in about the 1920's by someone who was involved in the Grenfell Mission. The tapestry itself was sold by the Grenfell Mission in the 1920's. It is quite simple, but finely done and in excellent shape. Does anyone know anything about the artwork produced by the Grenfell Mission in Labrador?

Very enjoyable site. I printed some information to re-read and to read to others. My gggrfather's and the "grannies" were born in Nova Scotia. The name is Coolen/Coolin/Cooling. All paths lead to Newfoundland for William Coolen in 1700's. I am unable to make the trip there (this year) and hope to find someone who can assist me in finding him, or show me my next step. I am anxious to visit Newfoundland soon, but time and money require me to have patience. Jini Coolen Briggs.

I am a 100% Newfoundlander born and raised. My home is a small town known as Blaketown, about 40 min. outside of St. John's. I've been living in Stratford Ont. for about 4 years. I'm very impress with all the access to the Newfoundland sites keep up the good work.
