Re: BLAKE, DANIEL - Antigua, Martinique, Caribbean

Viking Girl,
That sounds great. Amazing that you travel so much. It would be great if you could find some evidence of the Blake family in Canada.
My DNA results are due to be posted this month. Can't wait.

Re: BLAKE, DANIEL - Antigua, Martinique, Caribbean

Viking Girl, We have been searching from 1850 to 1857. When you search, lots of sites actually post all Christian names as well as all birth dates, even those outside your range. More and more records are coming on line everyday, so it pays to go back after a couple of years and recheck. I am waitin...

Re: BLAKE, DANIEL - Antigua, Martinique, Caribbean

bimjim, No I haven't. On what site would I check for them? I did make contact with a family who said they were Hughes and one of their ancestors changed his name to Blake on joining the navy. I have always got one eye open looking for this name to come up. I really appreciate all the work you do and...

Re: BLAKE, DANIEL - Antigua, Martinique, Caribbean

Hi, Sarah, Hi, Viking Girl Yes, I think you are right about Charles trying to hide something. I think it may have been, because he had Negro blood, and how badly the slaves and negro's in general were treated as second class citizens, that he thought it best to say he was from Canada. Some members o...

Re: BLAKE, DANIEL - Antigua, Martinique, Caribbean

Hi Viking Girl, great to hear from you. My name is Sandra Blake and my husband Ian is a descendant of Charles, Hinton James (Jim), and Alan (Kiwi) Blake. I started searching in about 1995 and like everyone else hit a brick wall. Recently, members of the family have resorted to having their DNA check...

They had a son around 1850 who claimed he was born in Antigua...
