    1. [CAN-NF-CONCEPTION-BAY-NORTH] Parsons of St. John's and Harbour Grace

    3. Hi everyone, I'm new to this group. I'm looking for information about the Parson's of the St. John's area, originally from Harbour Grace. My ggg-grandfather, "Henry" (John C.) Parsons (b. about 1806, d. 25 January 1871) was born in St. John's, Nfld. Henry was known to be a cabinet-maker, and immigrated to the United States (first New York, and ultimately Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) by the 1840's, and died in Philadelphia. His father was Jonathan Parsons (approx. 1781-1831), originally of Harbour Grace, I think. And Henry's mother was (Mary) Charlotte Butler (approx. 1787-1838). I think Jonathan's parents may have been John and Patience Parsons from Harbour Grace, but I'm just not sure. Does anyone have any further light you might be able to shed on this? Thanks! Tim

    3. Hello Tim..just seeing your details..admittedly, I have not been using this list very often..especially, since the new changes & issues with the site since December 2017. Tim, a few genealogy sites & sources for your research > 1) Newfoundland's Grand Banks - various options to search within this wonderful "go to" site!; 2) NL-Genweb [hosted by Rootsweb/Ancestry] - also with various options to research and, 3) FamilySearch - Newfoundland and Labrador. - keep in mind, and you are already aware, Harbour Grace is located in the Conception Bay (North) area of the province. Depending on the people your are searching, and their families..many migrated & moved out of and into other areas of the province but, also into the United States and across Canada. If you are on Facebook, you might want to consider joining > 1) Newfoundlanders and Genealogy and, 2) Newfoundland's Grand Banks. If you've had your DNA done, I would encourage you to become a member with the DNA databse, GEDMatch.com - there are many videos on Youtube to view for info. Once you've done that and you have been assigned your unique kit # by GEDMatch.com, you can then join many groups on Facebook for "matching" and connecting with DNA cousins. I would suggest - Newfoundland Gedmatch. Hope these details are of help, regards..Nora
