Bett's Cove - Anglican Mission Burial Records 1877 - 1879

From Church Records held at Botwood
They records come from about 18 original, large volumes which were stored at the Anglican Church in Botwood. The earlier records were found in a box in the basement while preparations were on-going for the 50th anniversary of the Church. Some of volumes survived a fire and a lot of the pages were partially burned. I was fortunate to be able to take the volumes home to transcribe them ..... this is very unusual with Church records. These volumes will be stored either in the Anglican Archives for Central Newfoundland or the Botwood Heritage Society Archives. I copied all the records on diskettes to be stored at the Church to eliminate any further handling of the fragile pages. A lot of the handwriting was hard to decipher so there are bound to be errors.
