History

The Bonavista Archives has been established by the Bonavista Historical Society in partnership with the Town of Bonavista and the Bonavista Historic Townscape Foundation. The Archives began as a natural outgrowth of the collection and research done by the Bonavista Historical Society and the Bonavista Museum. The collection began with a few genealogy related items and grew into a substantial collection which now includes church records from thirteen communities in the area.
