I have a private CD with the following info - is this yours, and what else are you looking for? Unfortunately, there are no parents names... and the rest of the listings for the surname do not help (I looked).

Thank you for replying to my post. The information I was requesting was for Wallace Sandiford Bethel (His parent's names, date of birth and family before them, etc.) I Thought maybe somebody on the list might know about this family.

On the IGI individual records there are not many Bethels' from Barbados listed. Most are from the Bahamas. Maybe they moved from there before Wallace was born. On familysearch.com on the new link Record Search Pilot, I found.
Harriet Millicent Bethel (b) 27-Nov 1881 (C) 02-Mar 1882 in St. Philip's, Barbados
Mary Christian Bethel (b) 09 June 1879 (C) 02-Mar 1882 in St. Philip's, Barbados
Father: Josiah Bethel Mother: Margaret Jane Mahon
Other then these two records plus two 1920 Census. I found Five Passage Arrival Lists.
Walter J. Bethel Wallace Sandsford Bethel - 1903
Walter Bethel Wallace Bethel - 1914
Evelyn Bethel - 1912
Lena Bethel - 1923
Stella Bethel - 1912

I do have the information on Wallace and Eleize's children. Ralph Bethel was my stepfather. Again, thank you for your help. If you would like to have the information on Walter and Geneva to give to your friend with the CD, I would be glad to share.

Regards,
Elaine

Glad I was able to help.

I created this resource, and check it every day. You will see that I have copied some Posts elsewhere within the Index, that is to help give searchers more exposure. Occasionally I have spare time and try to help new users.

So far as I know the person who created the CD does not do a great deal of work on it any more, he retired a few years ago and has interests in different areas now. But he kept me supplied with updated copies and I am still able to draw on it occasionally.

Now that your Post is here I hope others will find you and respond... all the best with your research!!
