|Newfoundland and Labrador|
The first known European settlers in Newfoundland came in 1001. In 1497, John Cabot made landfall at Bonavista. Newfoundland joined confederation on March 31, 1949. As a result of that, many of the early Canadian genealogical records do not apply to this province. Its name was changed to Newfoundland and Labrador in 2001. The French form of the name is Terre-Neuve-et-Labrador.
