Genealogy of Jamaica is an aid to research on Jamaican Families and contains data on more than 25,000 families, over 2000 photos plus numerous text files, all with Jamaican connections. Once installed on your PC you can add your own research and build your own family tree.

It is a result of many years of research and includes many extensive family trees, information extracted from Jamaican newspapers, articles etc., and even data on our National Heroes, Christopher Columbus and other prominent people associated with Jamaica going back several centuries.

It also includes over 7000 burial records at the St. Andrew Parish Church (1657-2000), and files listing names of several thousand slaves that were freed before official Emancipation. In many cases the reputed fathers are named. There are also some birth and death records extracted from official records.

The disc is for use on an IBM compatible computer, but there is a GEDCOM file that can be imported for use with other genealogy programs (including MAC).
