Hi

I have just found this info re the familysearch indexes

"Civil Registration began in Jamaica in 1878 as opposed to England when it began in 1837 and Scotland when 1862 was the initial date. The Government as compared to the church, began to keep records of births, deaths and marriages. The originals of the Jamaican records are held in the Registrar General's Department in Spanish Town, Jamaica, however the LDS Church (Mormon) has filmed these records. As of 2013 the LDS has not only filmed but digitized many (to about 1920 in some cases) of Civil Registration records of Jamaican births, marriages and deaths in that order. They may be searched for on their website at familysearch.org...."

but also this "Indexes on film go from 1878 to 1930, For example Indexes of Births 1878-1919 many missing years, Indexes of Deaths 1878-1930, and Indexes of Marriages 1871-1930 "

so maybe the records are missing, lost or not indexed who knows...certainly not me lol

There is a site for a Hermitt family here...
http://www.myheritage.com/site-60461632/hermitt

I suggest you contact the Administrator and make enquiries. The name is unusual enough that you are probably related.

Here also are two more records I found with the names you just added...

I found a death record which suggests he was born about 1917 - and that is an estimate. Depending on the month it could also be 1916 or 1918, but probably no other year. Given the death month, it is more likely he was actually born in 1916 or 1917.

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/QVSR-Z84Y
Name: Vincent Or Victor Hermitt
Event Type: Death
Event Date: 13 Dec 1953
Event Place: Kingston, Kingston, Jamaica
Gender: Male
Age: 36
Birth Year (Estimated): 1917
District: Kingston , GS Film Number: 001934259 , Digital Folder Number: 007235763 , Image Number: 01834

Here there are two records for Hermitt born in 1900, and both are for 1916. The next closest was 1919.

Please note that the first is a death, the same year as the birth, and is most probably a twin of the second listed birth and which survived just 8 days. Do you have other twins in your family?

https://familysearch.org/search/record/ ... year0=1900

Hermitt
Jamaica, Civil Registration, 1880-1999
birth: 1916
death: 12 March 1916 Parish of Saint Ann, Jamaica
mother: Mary Hermit

Hermit
Jamaica, Civil Registration, 1880-1999
birth: 4 March 1916 Parish of Saint Ann, Jamaica
mother: Mary Hermit



The second one (listed immediately above and immediately below) is a birth record and gives a birth date and the name of the mother. Unless you can find the actual certificate I think this information is about as reliable and you are going to find, given the unusual surname and the date.

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XNSR-CV9
Name: Hermit
Event Type: Birth
Event Date: 04 Mar 1916
Event Place: Parish of Saint Ann, Jamaica
Gender: Male
Mother's Name: Mary Hermit
Reference ID: 2952
District: Mount Moriah , GS Film Number: 1389209 , Digital Folder Number: 004519896 , Image Number: 01118
