Uncle Eli's Unofficial Guide to Nfld & Labrador Heritage

Amateur Genealogist and local Historian THOMAS COLES, has recently released a series of well documented references, particularly in regard to the Elliston area on the Bonavista Peninsula. Many of these emails contain names and information that is relevant to those researching family histories on the Eastport Peninsula, and other areas of the province.

With Mr COLES kind permission, I have volunteered to begin converting these emails to Web Pages for the benefit of all those who may find them of use in their research. For the most part, these emails will be simply converted to html by adding the appropriate html code and indexed on this page. The work is THOMAS COLES and all Copyrights are his and no part of this Collection may be reproduced, except for personal use, without express written permission from him. My contribution will consist entirely of setting the html code and posting the page(s). Uncle Eli
