Hi John Reid, This is in reference to 'The Cream of the Crop' you wrote in BIFHSOGO quarterly, Spring 2016. You mention a bok on Newfoundland Ancestry.I am curious as to where I could see this book, is it in a library in Ottawa ?

Thanks

Louise Henson

Family Names of the Island of Newfoundland is available for consultation at the Main Branch of the Ottawa Public Library, as an e-resource at the Carleton U library and at Library and Archives Canada.
