The Provincial Archives Division of The Rooms has numerous documents in its collection that are of interest to genealogists and family historians. Copies of some of these records are available to FHSNL members via the links below. Church records are excluded from this digitisation initiative (largely because the Provincial Archives does not own the church records, and therefore cannot grant consent for them to be copied). However, there are many government-owned records that are of genealogical value, such as the collection of Newfoundland passports, various court records, census records, etc., which we will be able to make available via the FHSNL website. Look for this online collection to grow over time.
