Hi to all my friend that are now gone away. This summer was great, and it was nice to see all the people that we have not seen in a long time. I really love Freshwater and when my husband is done in the miltary I hope to return home. I use to live on P rsons's Lane and my dad is Frank. My husband is from Midland Ontario and he loves Freshwater so much that when he comes home from Bosina in September we are coming back. This is a great site, and a great job to all the people who put this summer togethe it was a great time for all ages.

Thank you for giving me a look into my heritage. There is alot of information I would like to find out about my family and hreritage and this site has given me more than I ever thought I would ever know. Agustus Noel is my Great Great Grandfather. Clement Noel is my Great Great Great Grandfather. I have been to Freshwater once when I was 11 in 1981 and have not forgot the things I've seen or the experiences I had. I wish I knew about the reunion before today(Nov 14,00). I would have made an effort to come and join the celebration. I would really like to know how Roland Noel is related to me. I've asked my dad and he doesn't know the name. I had no idea that Freshwater had so much history considering everyone from NF that I have talked have never heard of it. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to learn about my family, I am very greatful.

I had to leave home a week and a half before the big reunion to go to Hay River, NWT to work. It almost broke my heart to leave just before the biggest party that I know to ever take place in Freshwater. I wish they would straighten out our health care sy tem so I could come back home soon. Keep up the good work on the page.

I have found your page to be of great help in my geographical historical analysis of Freshwater. My research is for a course that I am taking at Memorial University. It goes back to, as well as starts in, 1836 to 1857 and various things on your page were seful.

I am very impressed by the effort put in to built and maintain all this information on Freshwater. I'm the son of the late Charles Jesse Harvey of Freshwater hill. His parents were John B. and Elizabeth (Parsons) Harvey. I spent my first year as a newborn (1945-46)on Freshwater hill before we moved to St. John's. I enjoyed many summers during my youth climbing the the rocks of Freshwater.

I really enjoyed browsing through the site. I just found out about the reunion... don't know if I will be able to attend. My grandfather was Edward P. Moores and my Dad - Roy. I enjoyed many summers visiting Freshwater while I was growing up in St. Joh 's. This site brings back the memories of Clowns Cove and the Head and the family members we visited in Freshwater especially the Davis family.

The site brought back many memeories of my grandfather, George P. Davis, and the rest of my Newfoundland family. Keep up the great work!
