Welcome to the Upper Island Cove Family Roots website. My name is Randell Mercer, site
owner/administrator & a family tree member. My family roots are primarily associated with the
community of Upper Island Cove, located in the Conception Bay North area of the Province of
Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. In the process of researching my own family ancestry, I have
also compiled a considerable amount of information on many other family names that have resided at
Upper Island Cove, dating from its origin in the 1700s up to the 1950s and even beyond. These
include such surnames as Adams, Bishop, Clarke, Crane, Coombs, Drover, Greeley, Lynch, Lundrigan,
Newman, Sharpe and Young, as well as others. I am willing to share any of this information.
When requesting an invitation to access the site, please include some information on your family

earlier ancestor. Providing this information would enable me to determine if any of your family
connections are available online for your viewing. If your family connections are confirmed, I would
like to update the website to reflect any new information that you would have provided, and, at that
time, provide you with access as a "member".
