Ancestry's Canadian Bonanza: Newfoundland

After a long quiet period the flood gates have burst with 16 new Canadian databases now accessible on Ancestry for Alberta, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.
The Newfoundland databases now on Ancestry are:

DatabaseRecords

The 20th century census databases are sourced from the Newfoundland. Department Of Tourism, Culture, And Recreation. Note the warning about the unusual order of images in the 1945 census. Also note the 1935 census includes the parent's birthplace.
The Church Records are mainly but not exclusively Catholic, and include Church of Ireland. St. Patrick's Church (Waterford)1756-1770.
The two Births, Marriages, and Deaths data-sets are from collections of the Provincial government.

I am delighted to hear about new Newfoundland records at Ancestry. In 2009 I was researching a Newfoundland family called Noseworthy, and it was hell without easy online access to anything! Cheers, BT
