New to Newfoundland Research!

I've just uncovered evidence that my great-grandfather hails from St. John's, Newfoundland. Could someone advise me one how to start? I don't see Newfoundland stats listed on the Canadian census rolls?

Any guidance at all would be greatly appreciated!

The Newfoundland Grand Banks website is awsome, also, Canada Gen Web has a NFLD link as well. They both have message boards and you will see many of the same people on here. People on the message boards have been wonderful. They have pointed me in the right direction many times, and also let me know when I was in the wrong direction...lol.
Family Search has a lot of stuff too, and I've gotten a lot of help from people that viewed my family tree right here.

Surnames: Duggan, Waugh. Walsh, Furlong, Curran
I have been trying to trace by grandfather James John Duggan and grandmother Margaret Waugh. They lived in Newfoundland. My great-grandfather and great-grandmother were Patrick Duggan and Mary Joy. I am also having a terrible time finding information about them. I have gone on Newfoundlands digital web site and found lots of information but not specifically about them. Margaret Waugh and her parents (Bridget and Matthew Waugh) went from Newfoundland, to Quebec, Boston, Butte, Montana then to Seattle, Washington. Any help someone could give me would be great. My grandfather's cousins were Furlongs and Currans. Bridget Waugh was a Walsh.

Surnames: Curran and Walsh
I was reading your thread and came across Curran that was my grandmothers maiden name she married John Walsh from St Johns Newfoundland. If you think they could be related please email me maybe we could share information. I think there was a Bridget in the family but not sure which side? My Aunt is still alive and does have a lot of information, if this could help?

Hi, There were three men, William Curran, Thomas Furlong, and James John Duggan, who left Newfoundland and arrived in Butte, Montana. The three men were supposedly cousins. They married 3 sisters in Butte and then they all moved to Seattle, Washington. Your family and mine might be related. Could you figure out how? Thanks
