Hi Everyone:
Now, this particular message isn't about Genealogy (unusual for me), but is definately about Newfoundland/Labrador history....
In addition to the Island Register (P.E.I.), I also run a page of PEI telephone history and a small museum.
Now, what I am looking for are any ex-NewTel employees who
might remember any of several British Strowger telephone
exchanges which were installed in Newfoundland in the early
1950's. Now, it is possible that a similar exchange was installed in Clarenville. One also was also installed here on P.E.I. in Summerside, the Island's first automatic exchange.
By 1988, parts were getting very hard to get for this exchange, and it was replaced by a Nortel DMS-100, and the old exchange was shipped off to Newfoundland to keep your older switches going for a little while longer..
Do any of you on this list remember these early automatic
exchanges? Anyone know any related history - where they went, etc.
Thanks for putting up with this slight digression...

Hi everyone -- I found out very recently that my grandfather was from Clarenville Newfoundland. His name was Nathaniel Mills and he would have been born there around 1905 (he passed away about 15 years ago). He was in the Navy and was a carpenter. He had 2 children, Neil (my father) and Natalie and they used to go back to Clarenville every summer as children. He also had a neice named Cassie (her last name might have been Earl or something that sounds similar). I would love to find some family members or anyone that knew the Mills family, as my grandparents have all passed away and I don't have much family history. Please email me or post if you have any information. I would also love to visit someday as it looks beautiful.
Thank you!

Great site Kevin. I was working in Newfoundlander in '73-'74 and loved the island, people, and Clarenville in particular. I was pen-friending a Billie Balsom from Clarenville, who married Don... I have since lost their name and address- possibly somewhere in Ontario? Would love to get in touch again, if someone can help.

Great site. Brought back some wonderful memories and a few not so pleasant one. Can't wait to renew some old friendships.
I have a story about Mr. Horwood. Does anyone on the school bus remember the pine grove in Shoal Harbour (the Barbors estate)? Anyhow, there was a discussion in class about pine groves and Mr. Horwood asked if anyone knew of our beautiful local pine grove. Nobody seems to know the answer, so he directly questions me. Being shy and not very knowledgeable I was unable to answer. He proceeded to express that I should (of all the people on the bus) know where is was. To this day, every time I pass a pine tree or pine grove I think of him and that day.
