Re: CARRINGTON - Barbados to Trinidad and Tobago

FYI! There were a number of Carringtons that migrated directly from Barbados to New York, including my relatives, Clement and Eldica Carrington around 1920.

Re: GODDARD, MAYLIN, PRESS - Caribbean

Goddard is not one of the families that I am actively researching, but I do have a couple of Goddards (of African descent) in my family tree from Barbados (i.e., James, Florence and Cox).

Re: Family Tree Maker

Jim, Like you I have been a longtime Family Tree Maker user. First, it should be noted that Family Tree Maker has gone through a number of ownership changes over the years. Most recently, the program was purchased by Ancestry.com. Now, before I go any further, I would like to state that there are a ...

Re: SOBERS – Barbados, St. Peter and St. Andrew

Jim, You made me curious. I went back and took a look at the Soundex Codes for Sober (S160) and Sobers (S162). From Wikipedia, "The Soundex code for a name consists of a letter followed by three numerical digits: the letter is the first letter of the name, and the digits encode the remaining co...

Re: SOBERS – Barbados, St. Peter and St. Andrew

Hi Jim, Despite the fact that I caught the name change while doing my research, I didn't realize the Soundex code was different either. Reviewing your new list, none of the names fit the folks I found so far. Additionally, judging by the dates of those individuals, they are most likely Sobers of Eur...

Re: SOBERS – Barbados, St. Peter and St. Andrew

Hi Jim, Thanks for the information! Number 160 is one of my guys. His 1884 marriage record is spelled Sobers with an 's'. However, his 1863 baptism record is spelled Sober without the 's'. All the family records that I've uncovered before 1863 are spelled Sober. I had the good fortune of being able ...

Re: SOBERS – Barbados, St. Peter and St. Andrew

Hi Carmen, You're looking at four generations of Sober/Sobers. The last generation contains 3 brothers; James, Elverton and William. (Check out the birth dates.) James was my great grandfather. I don't have any info on his brothers, other than their baptism records. I'm assuming that my Samuel is no...

Re: CLARKE - Barbados to New York

Hi Kiera,

One last thing. I just happened to read something after I responded to your post earlier today. The Barbados records at FamilySearch.org may stop after 1880. So it may not be that useful to you for the period between 1880 and 1920. Give it a try anyway.

Re: CLARKE - Barbados to New York

Hi Kiera, I have had a lot of luck finding my Bajan relatives in the New York Passenger Lists arriving from Barbados. Initially, depending on the year of their arrival, they could be found for free on Ellis Island’s Web site http://www.ellisisland.org/ . However, that data is also now available on A...
