I a researching the family of 'E.E. Bronstorph' but am stuck ... One such person is shown as being a Medical Doctor with Montreal roots and being in Jamaica in the late 1800's, but at the same time another person with the same name/initials is shown as being an engineer for the 'Ice Company' in KIngston, JM .... In addition there is another clearly younger person with same name who then became a doctor while studying at Edinburgh in the 1920's. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I could not find much in the IGI.

If you know WHICH PARISH in Jamaica, go on Facebook and search for a genealogy group for that Parish and ask. There is a group for each Parish, and are usually very helpful.

For instance, there is a group named "Manchester Jamaican Generalogy".
