Landownership Archivist (Former Employee) –  Town Hall at St. George's, NL1 March 2013
A typical day at work was collecting data from the local Surveyor, such as Government Grants, Deeds and any other land information possible. Interviewing residents of Sandy Point. Getting to know the people who lived there and how it was to live on an Island with no vehicles except for horse and buggy. Collecting information on Landownership.

There was plenty to learn. The way they lived with no electricity, They used wind chargers. They traveled to the main lands through boat and ships. There were shipwrecks and ship sinking. The community was split between religions, Catholic living Up Along and Protestants living Down Along. They interacted with each other, Involved both priest in their ceremonies and funerals. They abandoned the community around the late 60's during the installation of the train and because of lack of doctors and travel and other modern day utilities.

Management was in St. John's, NL but was always available for any questions or supplies.

Co-workers were always available to help and to supply travel to and from the community.

The hardest part of the job was learning how much the residents loved their community and having to look at their parent's homes in vandalism and ruin when they would visit their home town of Sandy Point.

The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting the people from Sandy Point. Spending time with them and learning how they managed with what they had. I remember students coming to our class from Sandy Point. How we have evolved.
getting pictures from the residents, putting pictures together for stories surrounding the community of sandy point.
not all residents knew if their parents owned land.
