New Structure for Site

I have restructured the Web Site to better reflect the information I currently have. I moved information on Newells from other areas of Newfoundland to it’s own section on the opening page.  I have also added a section on Merchant Connections under ‘The Dock’.

Newells of Brigus and Burnt Head Nfld.

I have started adding material on the Newells of Brigus and Burnt Head (towns near ‘The Dock’). This is posted under “Other Nfld. Newells” which is under “The Dock Nfld” (see location in menu below). Both of these sections are still under construction so I will be adding more material in the future.

More WWI Newells

I just added material on Newells from Burnt Head and the Brigus / Georgetown  area who served in WWI.  Five Newells from Burnt Head  served in the Canadian Army during WWI;  two of which died overseas.  Two other Newells from the Brigus / Georgetown  area also server; one of which died overseas. Along with those from ‘The Dock’ this makes at least 12 Newells from Conception Bay North who served, 6 of which died overseas.


New material Added

I have just added a new section on the Newells of North River. This is saved under a new Tab “Other Nfld Newells” (see menu below).

I have also added photos of Jane Reed and photos and other information on Lewis Newell under the WWI Tab.
