Started a new section, under ‘The Early Newells’ Tab on the Wells family of Salmon Cove. My great grandmother Caroline Wells was from this family but they also had sveral other connections to the Newells of ‘The Dock’.
Added information on Private Wells, who had connections to ‘The Dock’, to my section on WWI see: http://johnpnewell.com/the-dock-nfld/wwi/
For the past several months I have been conducting new research into my DNA (updating research from 5 years ago). This body of research has grown to the extent that I have given it a new top level Tab on the Web Site. This section is still under development.
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’.
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.
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.
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.
I have just started entering a Bio for Jane Reed (more to come)
I have just added a section on WWI under the Newells of The Dock.
I have just started a new section with bios on some related Newells.
The first of these is on Harold Newell
