I am searching for information on the Gittens Family.
I am not quite sure where they originated from, but Timothy and his wife Beatrice lived in Panama in the 1910's.
Thank you in advance for any help that you can offer.

I know Gittens as a Barbados name.

Gittens is a well-known name in Barbados. I am presently researching Panamanian families with Barbadian connections, and there seem to be many such families. But that's not surprising since more than 25,000 Barbadians - including my maternal great-grandfather - migrated to Panama to work on the Canal project. Many stayed there after the project was completed. FYI, I came across a post on-line about the Gittens families, but unfortunately didn't save it.

There are also Gittens in the USVI, St.Croix to be exact.
