I found old photos of my father in Goose Bay in 1946 with the US Airbase and I was wondering if you have registers of people that were based there and what they were doing. It's a mystery for me. My father died in 1960 and I'd like to trace back some part of its life. Nicole Levac; my father's name: Rolland Levac

A most interesting web site; very well organized and easy to follow. It gives a very comprehensive overview of the Beothuk way of life. As a native Newfoundlander now in retirement I have been interested in reading about our history and peoples.

Reading about St. Paul's is of a very special experience for me. My Grandfather was the Rev. James White who was the minister there when he died around 1914 (my mother, Mary White, daughter of Rev. White and Maude Caroline, was born in Trinity, June 25, 1912 - her Father died when she was around 2 years old. She and my grandmother are both buried in St. James Anglican Church cemetery in Hudson.

I was sent an article about one of the survivors from the Caribou. I would love to find out which newspaper it came from. The article is a story I have heard most of my life growing up: It says Caribou Sinking was worst of Seven Experiences. Seaman Eric Andrews, son of Mr. and Mrs Chas Andrews, returned home during the past week on leave after his rescue from the torpedoed Caribou. This sinking made the seventh torpedoing thst he has survived in the war. But he says, "I want to forget the Caribou. The screaming of women and children was awful. It was the worst experience I ever went through." When the Caribou was torpedoed, seaman Andrews was awakened by the explosion.

Your article on the Western Bay railway station refers. The article needs correcting as there never was a Carbonear to Port de Grave railway line. The station is located on the former Carbonear to Bay de Verde/Grates Cove branch line.

Hi Don,

You are correct, the station is located on the former Carbonear to Bay de Verde/Grates Cove branch line.

You can view the corrected version at: http://www.heritage.nf.ca/society/rhs/tz_listing/161.html

Thank you for taking the time to insert your comment into the Guest Book. It is appreciated.

I have enjoyed reading about the history and culture of the Mi'kmaq since I have Mi'kmaq roots. It is truly unfortunate there are no earlier records.

I would love to visit this house as I lived in it from Nov 73 to Aug 1976. I am planning a trip to tour the island next year and especially St. Anthony peninsula and the hospital. I would to meet anyone still living locally and who remember me.

I spent a lot of time in Newfoundland years ago installing machinery and working with many of the slate and granite companies. It was a most enjoyable time. Jerry

This is cool, but if you do not have Java you can not play any of the games. But I got a lot of information.

My uncle Terrance Dwyer was one of the brave men lost at sea as a result of the Ocean Ranger Disaster. May God Bless all of the souls who died during this disaster and all of their families.

Exceptionally interesting...like a good book you cannot put down. Great historical information...put the site and the glossary on my favorites for reference. Admire the lifestyle of the Inuit...it creates a desire to live among them.

Having recently read Mark Kurlansky's "SALT: a World History," and its references to Newfoundland's fishing heritige, I was moved to inquire further into the details of that sad story. I grew up in St. John's (1931-'45) in a shore-bound family. My sole connection with the fisheries was being dispatched, before school on Friday mornings, down over the Mounment to King's Wharf, to buy a fish for dinner. My companion on many of those excursions was Brendan Kennedy (1928-'99) who went to work at NAFEL soon after leaving St. Pat's and who retired as a Vice President of the Canadian Saltfish Corp. Except for a few short visits, I have lived abroad all these years, but there's a shelf of Newfoundland books in my modest personal library. Thanks for the data and, however unintended, the nostalgia.KTSLHE
