Visited Kenogami Aug 5 to 8/08. Would anyone know how or where I could access school and church (St Famille) records going back to the 1940s. My hope is that those records might show our address at the time. I am trying to pinpoint the street on which we lived as well as the school my sisters attended.

Back in 1943 there was a very small school not far from St Famille Church. It was one or two rooms (possibly on Rue Cabot????). This was a french school because my family was french. Would someone know the name of this school.
Many thanks,

Noelville cops not doing there job!!!

Where are they when the citizens and visitors of Noelville need their assistance? That punky little gang that is going around terrorizing everyone and putting people in the hospitals with broken limbs and other body parts must be too much for them to handle because these kids have been getting away with it for far to long.
Come on OPP get with the program! This gang needs to be stopped before these beatings turn to a murder!!!

My Great Grandmother Sarah Basey was one of the oldest resident's of Ituna until her death in the early 1980's. I am trying to find family history on Sarah and her husband George.

Great place to live or spend summers camping. Friendly neighbors, great sunrises. Over all a peaceful community.
We've been here two years and live there year round and still love it. After escaping the city traffic, you are so relaxed once you get home to Sunrise Beach.

The French River is beautiful. Every year for about 10years now me and my family have been going up to the cottages at Schells Camp right on the French River. It's breath taking. All the rock formations, and being out on the water really gives you a good feel for Ontario. I feel so relaxed out there on the boat. Its such a nice little town, you fall in love with it and when ever you need a break, you always think of the French River. Its an amazing place, a good change from the city life.

I've been in Elmvale for almost 10 years now, more then half my life. If your into the laid back quiet life style, Elmvale is deffinetly the place to be. But then again theres always fun stuff to do, from the Maple Syrup festival to the Fall fair, all huge events for elmvale. The school's are great, I've met some pretty awesome people here, and although sometimes I wanna hit the road and have a new advenure I know I would miss this quiet little village, you get pretty attachted to it, its a beautiful place. Its the type of place where everyone knows everyone, and even if you dont, you say hi to people when you walk down the street. It's a good change from city life. Proudly from Elmvale.

I bought a house in Main Point, NL on Gander Bay in April of 2008. I'm from Florida and found the place on the internet never having been to Newfoundland, I found it to be the friendliest and most peaceful place I have ever been, looks like I'll be retiring to Gander Bay in about 7 years! I wish it was sooner. Will be there from August 6-21, 2008. The only drawback is getting there!

I have many childhood memories related to North Cobalt from the 50's and early 60's. My dad was born and raised in North Cobalt and his sister Carm Stubinski lived there during the time mentioned. She lived in the old railroad station at the end of lakeview St. That railroad station was taken down about 35 years ago. Please if any body has pictures of that station and are willing to send it to me, the whole family would be very grateful. There is no pictures of this historical station that I can find.

Trying to locate old friends and relatives in NB has become quite difficult. I lived in Campbellton in the 49 - 51 era and Tide Head was my favourite swiming hole despite the lampher eels at the pump house.

I would love to contact some old friends of that era from Tide Head and Campbellton to compose a historical brief of those few years and perhaps gather photos as well.

Presently, my name thoughts are of Arthur Tenier, Bones, Muriel Gerard and Ann Crockett of Campbellton and also of Sandra MacMillan of Tide Head...all teens at 1950.

Any help would certainly be appreciated.

Searching for my Grandmother and her ancestors. Funeral records show she was born either 7 January 1900 or 1 April 1900, in Paisley, Ontario. Father listed as James Morrison. Mother listed as Sarah Kilpatrick. Parents listed as Irish. But I was always told she was Scottish.

Ontario records comes up with nothing.

Would appreciate it if anyone has any knowledge or information surrounding this family. I don't know if my Grandmother had any brothers or sisters.

Thanks.

Londonderry is my favorite place in the province ! Both my parents are from there (George & GenevieveRichard-Carter)
I'm the youngest of 9 chidren , and we all played there down by the river , the graveyard ,out in the field at the old Richard house up on the hill .So many happy memories .
So many of the relatives are gone now . We still have a few , Louie Johnson , Danny Richard . I just wish we had a place to call home up there of our own , maybe someday !
Londonderry will always be apart of us kids and we will always have our visits up to visit the graves of our family
and spend some time down at the river like old times .

Burnt Church got its name because of an attack on a Mikmaw village by the British under the command of Col. James Murray from orders of General James Wolfe on September 17, 1758.
Their mission was to attack and destroy as many Acadien
villages as they can on their way to Quebec to eventually besiege the city and defeat General Montcalm on the Plains of Abraham the following year.

Prior to the arrival of Europeans, the site now known as Burnt Church was referred to by the local inhabitants as Esgenoopititj, meaning a place to watch towards the water. Native legend has it that a medicine man predicted the coming of the white man long before it happened in the mid sixteenth century by saying that there would be floating islands with tall trees and white clouds that would enter what is now known as the entrance to the Inner Miramichi Bay in New Brunswick, Canada.

The true name for the area is Esgenoopititj. It is a Mikmaw word that means to look out from the coast. The name was chosen because you could always see anyone coming in to the inner Miramichi Bay from this point of land. Esgenooapin means to look from the shore to the sea. There was an old story from our people that an old Chief that lived prior to the coming of the white man said that there would be islands made of trees and clouds that would appear at the channel between the two islands (Today are the Portage and Fox Islands). Our people at the time waited for many years until yes it happened when Jacques Cartier landed here in the early 1500's

My family was originally from St. Dominique. I would love to go to see it some time. . I believe they must have left Canada in the 1890's or early 1900's.
If anyone has any knowledge of them please contact me. Or if you've ever been to Saint Dominique and can tell me what it's like, I'd like to hear from you.

Although I have never personally been to Pibroch, nor Canada, my late father spent at least ten years in Pibroch prior to world war 2. He told stories of living with his cousins and working in what he would term as "the trading post" I suppose it would have been a sort of general store.
He refered to his cousin a "Suke Leonard" I last heard of her living in a rest home near Vancouver, but that was many many years ago.
My dad left Canada when he "joined up" he served back home in England with 408 (Goose) squadron RCAF. He never did get back to Canada, he remained to the end back at his own family home her in Liverpool UK. We occasionally dig out some very old black and white photographs and marvel at the snow covered expanses or very hot looking summers.
