"In an extensive introduction E.R. Seary discusses the historic and linguistic origins of Newfoundland surnames and their cultural sources - notably English, Welsh, Irish, Scottish, French, Syrian, Lebanese, and Micmac. The body of the work is a dictionary of family names, which includes variant spellings and cross-references, countries of origin, and meaning. Newfoundland's most common surnames and places named after families are also identified."
