In partnership with the Town of Harbour Grace, our project to digitize board member Anne Gosse’s immense research on WWI soldiers from the greater Harbour Grace area is now complete! The full listing can be viewed here, and the individual solider profiles can be viewed here. We are excited to have an interactive way to present this research on our website.

Many thanks to Katelyn Galway and Jennifer Pike, summer students for the Town of Harbour Grace (2019), funded through Service Canada’s Canada Summer Jobs program and Newfoundland & Labrador’s Dept. of Advanced Education, Skills & Labour’s Post-Secondary Student Summer Employment Program, who digitally uploaded this extensive research.

Thank you to the Harbour Grace Town Council and staff and the Conception Bay Museum’s Board of Directors for supporting this project.
