I have identified a James Henry Ward McKie, who I believe was my three time great grandfather. He lived in the parish of St Michael. I am desperately searching for any lead on his relatives.

If anybody can help me I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks Bimjim. I have the familysearch data and it has been very useful but I suspect that it is, at this point in time, incomplete. The entry in Scotland and Barbados links is very interesting. There may be a connection.
