This is an email that may be of interest to some members of the Royal Canadian Legion :


Dear Jackie,
After recently coming across Newfoundland & Labrador War Brides, I noticed our sites share an emphasis on veteran health. My name is Christian Diaz, and as the Communications Director for Mesothelioma Symptoms, I’d like to offer our resource to inform members of the Royal Canadian Legion of this cancer threat. Our site, ensures former service members have the knowledge they need about this disease.

According to the Canadian Veterans Affairs, asbestos was reported to have been widely used in construction and many other industries worldwide. Many ships around the world including US submarines and Royal Canadian Navy ships contained asbestos-based insulation in pipes and boilers to prevent fires. With the destruction of war, these toxic fibers are easily released into the air and inhaled by unsuspecting troops latching onto their lungs and causing mesothelioma...

Author Linda Granfield spoke at the Corner Brook Royal Canadian Legion on Oct. 22 , 2010, my husband and I attended.
We both enjoyed her presentation. I thought because her books deal with WWI and are aimed at readers from 10 to 100
that these books would be good material for students who are doing research for school projects.

Remembering John McCrae: Soldier-Doctor-Poet.
Scholastic Canada 2009. ISBN-10: 0-439-93561-X, ISBN-13: 978-0-439-93561-6

I am putting this site near the top of the list because I think this is a very inportant site for
anyone interested in Newfoundland's part in WWI.
This is a new site just launched in April 2010 and well worth a look.
The Newfoundland Regiment and the Great War (WWI)

This is a new site just launched in April 2010 and well worth a look.

This site provides good and interesting documentation.

Project Summary

This site was developed by The Rooms Corporation of Newfoundland and Labrador in partnership with the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador (Department of Education), as part of the Cultural Connections Strategy. The site was specifically designed for use by students and teachers in Grade 8 Newfoundland and Labrador History and Newfoundland and Labrador Studies 2205.
This site will also resonate with audiences who are interested in the history of Newfoundland and Labrador's involvement in the First World War. The site contains the military files of over 2200 soldiers from the Royal Newfoundland Regiment who served in the First World War, including those of the 1305 young men who died in the conflict. These files are searchable by name or by community and will therefore provide invaluable information for all viewers, but will be of particular interest to those who are conducting either family or community research.

Maureen Lee

Is an English author who has written stories about war time England. I include her because she gives a very good account of war time Liverpool. This provide us with a better understanding of what some of what women might have gone through on the other side of the ocean.

Newfoundland Grand Banks Genealogy web site
This is an excellent site.

This site proves what can happen when people of like minds come together. Through hard work and time many people have brought this site to life.

There Mission Statement is:
The purpose of this site is to provide original genealogical and historical data in the form of census information, Provincial wide directory publications, church, parish, and cemetery records, and many other original source documents. It has been created for those desiring to do research in the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

At its inception in April of 1998, it was decided to transcribe and digitize the 1921 census for Newfoundland. Thus, it came to be known by the nickname "Project21, Home of the 1921 Newfoundland Census." Since then the site has added an immense collection of original material. Included are the following complete directory publications on the site: Hutchinson's 1864-65, Lovell's 1871, McAlpine 1894, McAlpine's 1898, McAlpine's 1904, the 1884 Methodist census for Burin, and many others, as well as various church records, graveyard transcriptions, wills transcriptions, additional census documents and many other items too numerous to mention.

This site is currently the largest storehouse of original resource material on the Internet, relating to Newfoundland in North America, and enjoys the largest number of visitors of any site providing genealogical information for the Province of Newfoundland.

At present, we are operating under a system of directors and coordinators, all of whom are volunteers, plus hundreds of additional volunteers who have helped in everything from getting material, typing and transcribing the material or to anything else that has been needed. These are the people who have really made this site what it is today. Our thanks to every one of them for their efforts and assistance.

The Virtual War Memorial Project

The Project Wonderstrand.com has created a Virtual War Memorial for all those Labradorians who served in World War I, World War II and the Korean War. This was originally established to help publicize the planning for the Labrador War Memorial in Cartwright. Now that this first objective has been accomplished we will maintain this web site as a virtual war memorial for those who cannot visit the monument in person.
