Little Bay Islands (Notre Dame Bay) Methodist Records

What follows is a list of all Pike entries in the Methodist records from Little Bay Islands that are held at PANL as of May 2007. This list constitutes a typescript of my handwritten extraction from photocopies of the original records, which is to say that I may have inadvertantly introduced some errors while transcribing and typing... as always, you should double-check against the original records. That said, if you spot any mistakes that I have made, please let me know at Additional Pike entries from other Newfoundland church records can also be found on my website.

Some comments about this list:

At PANL these records are in volumes as follows:

Some of these volumes appear to be for Little Bay Islands and others for the Little Bay Circuit, which is where most of the Pike entries were found. The 1867-1942 marriage register (for Little Bay Islands) has two volumes, with the first covering up to about 1901; given the lack of Pike entries in the first volume, I skipped the second volume.
