Freebie for Newfoundland Genealogy

Yesterday I was poking around on the internet and came across a great site for those tracing ancestors from Newfoundland. According to the Newfoundland's Grand Banks website, it offers "genealogical and historical data for the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador." I'm still exploring to learn the true depth of the site, but from what I've found so far, it could be an invaluable free resource for those tracing their genealogy.

The site offers a message board for genealogists researching families from the area, a wide array of transcriptions and historical information on the area. Specific genealogical data you can expect to find includes
  • Cemetery Transcriptions
  • Census (Newfoundland, US, Canada and British
  • Directories
  • Family Bibles
  • Legal Documents
  • Newspapers
  • Photographs
  • Passenger Lists
  • Parish Records
  • Voter's Lists
  • Vital Statistics
  • Wills
On the historical side, the site offers
  • Colonial Office Records
  • House of Assembly Records
  • Historical information on some communities
  • Disasters
  • Military Records
  • Stories
If your family has a connection to Newfoundland and you haven't yet checked out this free genealogy resource, make sure to add it to your to-do list. You may be surprised what you can find.
