Re: How many users have done a DNA test?

I have done the Ancestry DNA test and have managed to solve one of my brick walls, as a result. Having said that, I had already found the likely relatives and asked them to take the test which they did. I've got 167 pages of "relatives", but most are too distant to figure out the relations...

HENRIQUES, Emma - Jamaica

Are there any Jamaica Henriques descendants out there who have taken an Ancestry DNA test? Do you have an Emma Henriques in your tree? She would have been born in Jamaica in the late 1840s or early 1850s. She had an illegitimate child with a William Sheldon about 1873 or 1874. The child in question ...

In case you didn't know, all the Jamaican records are available . at http://www.familysearch.org

You have to register, but access is free and for the most part images of the original documents are also available for download.

Cheers, Cathy

Re: PURCELL - Grenada

Jane Victoria Purcell did move to Jamaica with her husband, Peter Francis Aquart, but not until the early 1890s. There were Purcell family members living there in the Annotto Bay area (Parish of St. Mary). Do you know which part of the island your ancestors were from? I haven't done much research on...

Re: Birth & Marriage Certificates

Hi Pam, You have to sign up for an account with familysearch.org to be able to see the documents. It's free. I don't think all the records are up yet, the indexing is still in progress. Keep checking back if you can't find the birth. It's also a good idea to try some variant spellings as sometimes t...

Re: Jamaican birth records in late 1800's with no given name

I also have found a number of birth records after civil registration in Jamaica that give no name for the child - just date of birth and sex. I'm not sure why this is. It's not only Jamaica as I have a similar situation in Grenada. I have no connections to Maroons that I know of.

Re: Emigration within Caribbean and South America

Hi Beverley, The Jamaica Gleaner is archived on the following site: http://newspaperarchive.com/ There is a subscription, but well worth it as it is a great source of genealogical information. If you get a one month subscription when you have the time, you can just do a blitz. Also, many records for...

Re: JOSEPH - Grenada

Hi Sue, There are registers available for Grenada up to 1935 (not the IGI) - a bit late for your Emily, but once you know her father's name, you should be able to find him and earlier ancestors; The Mormons have photographed a large number of Grenada Church records, Civil Registration BMD registers,...

Re: JOSEPH - Grenada

Hi Sue, I left you a couple of replies on the Caribbean discussion list, but I'll post them here also: If you are in the London area, have you checked out the Family History Centre <http://www.londonfhc.org/>? I did a quick search and they seem to have a large (complete?)selection of Grenada records...

Re: DELEON - Jamaica

Hi,

I have a Susan Frances DeLeon in my tree born c. 1849 in Spanish Town. She married William Alexander Massias 26 Jan 1869. I don't know who her parents were, but I know she had at least one sister, Sarah Jane DeLeon, who married Henry Mc Gilchrist.

Is my Susan part of your tree?
