Hi, I am 52 years old and just found out last summer that I am part of the Qalipu Mi'kmaq First Nation Band. It is so great to know this. All my life we were bullied and called Micmacs, but I never knew that we were part of something so great. Thank you.

Bell Island, Newfouldland holds a special place in my heart. My mother was born there and my grandfather was a supervisor in mine #6 until the mines closed in the 1960's.

Enjoyed the site. I was with the U.S. Air Force in 1954 and came to the Island [Bell Island - webmaster] from St John's for a baseball game against the local team. The players came up from the mines, fed us and then beat us badly. The players and locals treated us warmly. Very nice memories. Your website is great. I learned a lot about the mines. Thank you.

Recently, I was fortunate to find an original, lovely illustrated map of Newfoundland produced by artist Paul Parsons. The map is professionally mounted and framed within a wooden and glass frame. I was doing some research on this heirloom and I was very impressed with what I discovered so far. Now, I would love to know if this piece of history is of any value? Anything you can provide me with would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I look forward to reading your website. I learned two weeks ago that my great grandmother was Inuit. I'm 55 so this was a surprise...but not a surprise on the other hand. It explains some things. I would like to find some information about her; her name was Mariah Pond and I understand she as from Labrador.

I descended from Basile Daigle who was born in Labrador Newfoundland in 1822. His father was Joseph Daigle b. 1777 and his mother was Charlotte Pelletier b. 1779. My DNA says I share some genes with present day Inuit from Greenland and elsewhere. I also descend from Portugese sailors with the surname Rodrigue(s) who came to Quebec. I am looking to find out where those genes might have come from. Any direction would be helpful. Very informative site.

I was researching the marriage custom of going down to the harbour where the fisherman would line up and fire off their guns for the newly weds. I found nothing. A friend from the Mainland saw this recently on Fogo. "Like no wedding he'd ever been to." We mainlanders are so tame.

Hi R. Bishop,

Unfortunately Sebastian St. does not exist anymore. In the following link I have extracted a detail from an insurance map of St. John's created, I believe, in the 1920s. It shows Sebastian St. in the upper half of the map slightly left of centre. It is below Central St. and left of Barter's Hill. Also, notice the spelling - Sebastain, rather than Sebastian. I believe, however, that is merely a mispelling as other references to the street spell it with an "ian."

If you view the same section of St. John's today in Google Maps you will notice the difference. Most of the area in the detail section of the 1920s map has been cleared for new development, i.e., an hotel, office complex and an hockey arena. Here's the link to that map: Sebastian St.

Regards,

My grandmother grew up in an orphanage in Newfoundland & Labrador, CA. I was hoping to find out more about that. I heard that Inuit children were taken from their families to better educate and promised them a better life and then come to find out, they were pushing Christianity and trying to "blend" the Inuit population. Please contact me on Facebook if you have any more information regarding this. Jen Anderson Giuffre.

It is my opinion that this house was probably built much earlier, likely in the early 1860s, since it is similar in style to other structures (the now defunct (Tom) Clancy and (Nora) Rossiter homes) of that era. I would suggest it was originally the home of Thomas Power, Mary (Power) Boland's grandfather. It appears to have been inherited by John Power, Thomas' eldest son, who married Theresa Grant in Apr. 1896. This couple had seven children, but all died young, except for Mary.

My Mother was one of 13 children in the Oldford family. She had an older brother named Gus or Augustus, I believe. The brother Gus had a son named Gus who is mentioned in this article. She left Newfoundland at the age of 13 or in 1923. I would be interested in connecting with anyone from her family. My Mother died in August, 2001 one month short of 91 years. Many of my cousins live in the Detroit Metro area.

I am a mature student reading an M/PHD PT at King's College, London. My MA was obtained at The University of Limerick (2009). My interest is in Ireland's contribution, in men and materials, to the Royal Navy. The title of my MA thesis was "'England is lost if Cork be taken' The War at Sea 1775 - 1815." My working title, now, is "The Navy at Cork 1793 - 1837." I wonder if there is any information, on your side of the pond, on the probable link between the Navy at Cork, and its association with the east coast of Canada during the period. I would appreciate any assistance you may be able to offer me. Kind regards, Fred Shekleton.

Hi Fred,

Likely, the best person to contact regarding your question is Dr. Jerry Bannister at Dalhousie University in Halifax, NS. He is an expert on the British Naval presence in Newfoundland and Labrador and he should be able to help, or at least provide you with some information where you might find sources to answer your question.

If you go to the Dalhousie web site you will be able to find contact information for him.

Good luck with your search.

In1969 I had the priviledge to visit Nth. West River. I was @ GooseBay in the Royal Air Force & often went there throughout the year. The GM Hospital staff were very friendly. I also met the social staff on the "other R. Catholic side" including teachers! The Northside to me in the Summer, was just like an English village green. White Anglo Saxon Protestants (WASPS). The southside were the Montagnese Native Canadians & served by a Belgian priest. When the "Canadian Indian Agent" provided their welfare cheque there was much celebrations. At that time access was via a cable cabin rope driven by a Coventry Climax engine, to which we provided spare parts whenever required! God Bless all your work & God Bless you all.

The Historical Home of Abram Richards was the home of my Great Grandfather as his son William Richards was my Grandfather. A discovery I am pleased to have made. Hopefully I can discover the roots of the Richards family from Bareneed. Thank you.

I spent the first 19 years of my life living on what is now know as the Squires Barn & Carriage House property. I was saddened when the house had to be torn down & feel there should have been some effort to save it when it was starting to fall into disrepair. The property had to be sold when my father Gerald Squires died in 1977 at age 53, as my mother Nina Sparkes could not keep up with the repairs. I still miss the place & have wonderful memories of growing up in such an unspoiled area.

i am hoping you can help, my grandfather peter petipas sr. of whitbourne did a daring feat in the early 1900's when he was between the ages of 16-18, he crossed over a raging brook hand over hand & reconnected the telegraph lines and saved an oncoming train the lintrose express.I was wondering if you had an way that there are records of this event occuring in newfoundland, he happened over the aspen brook, which i think is in grandfalls area. i would so greatly appreciate any help from you. thankyou for your time.

I was finally able to go to Grates Cove in 2010. What a beautiful place. That ancestry must be why I love the Atlantic coast so much. Thank you for this site.

I will be visiting Guernsey and Jersey in June, and would like to know if my ancestors really did come from one of these islands. Any help sent to dimercer@ns.sympatico.ca would be greatly appreciated.

Sometime in the 1980's some artillery related organisation aquired a WW II 155 mm howitzer which required the participation of the Experimental Firing Range Establishment at Shoeburyness and the Firepower Museum in Woolwich. The 155 mm was donated to Newfoundland by the British Royal Artilley Assn, I believe. Anyone know the details ?

I'm in the process of getting my status. Thanks to my family back home, I'm afraid it would be an impossible task if I had to do this on my own. I'm old enough to remember someone spoke a language to me when I first attended school and was scared to death. It was the English language. Since I started the process, I feel at peace with myself. I cannot even begin to imagine all the effort put forward by everyone involved in the process. I Thank them all very much. The information is incredible.

I have found Ramah Flint artifacts here in the Ausable River Valley, 6 miles from Lake Champlain. The Ramah Flint pieces are associated with Late Paleo and early Archaic assemblages on this (now Ausable river) but at that time edge of a bay on the Champlain Sea. SO, the extent of distribution goes into the Champlain Valley region of New York.
