I was stationed at the U.S. Air Force base in 1953. Enjoyed touring Placentia during off hours.

Hi, it is Bonnie Joerger again. As I thought, there was an error and Greenspond is not in Placentia Bay, although it states on Nannie's birth certificate!! Although I have been doing lots of genealogical work on our family, the Ways are not the only relatives from NL! There are also Maddick, Withycombe, Follett, Rideout and Osmonds, to name a few. Thanks for everyone's input.

Hi Bonnie, Are you sure it wasn't in Bonavista Bay? I think I've met some people with the last name Way from that area.

My grandmother and most of her father's family were born in Greenspond, Placentia Bay, but it does not seemed to be listed. The last name was Way with several different spellings, including Weay. Anyone know exactly where Greenspond is in the bay? Nanny ended up in B.C.

stationed there in 1953 and 1954 at McAndrew AFB and enjoyed every minute of my time there. Married my wife of 56 years from Long Harbour and who was a civilian employee on the base. Great memories and have been back many, many times.
