About Our Family Research

Hi I'm William David Oake and for the last couple of months I have been researching my family history throught the internet. My grandfather Austin has also been helping me with my research using family photos and trees. My grandfather Austin Oake is from Fogo Island Newfoundland an isolated fishing island that can only be reached by ferry. I'm pretty sure that my ancestors moved from the Isle of Wight just off the coast of England to Fogo Island Newfoundland between the 1730's and 1840's. I can trace my family history back to my great great great grandparents Joseph and Mary Torraville Oake in the 1840's. I'm 18 years old and originally from Halifax Nova Scotia but I moved to Moncton New Brunswick 4 years ago. I would sincerely appreciate any information you may have A.S.A.P.
