The Family History Society of Newfoundland and Labrador maintains an ever-growing library of genealogical resource materials, including our burgeoning collection of family and community histories, donated by members and patrons alike. An index to the items in this collection can be found in "Section O" starting on page 121 of our Guide to Holdings.

To convey a sense of the variety of our collection, below you will find links to a selection from our collection.
In order to view these examples, we ask that you first register and login to our website.

Other items from our collection of histories can be viewed at our research centre.

If you have a family or community history then please consider donating a copy of it to the society. Even incomplete family trees can be of value to other researchers, and increasing the visibility of your work means that others researching the same family or location may be able to help you fill in the blanks.
