Emigration within Caribbean and South America

Postby Rhoden Nelson » Mon Mar 11, 2013 12:01 am

I wanted some advice on where I could start to look for a great uncle who was sent to Panama or Guatemala in the early 1900's. a death notice was allegedly post in the newspaper ( my mother thinks it may have been the Jamaican Gleaner) around 1940-45 but am having difficulty locating it.
So to summarise my questions are:

Travel in and around Caribbean during the early 1900's
Newspapers available in Jamaica during the period 1940-45

Thanking you in advance :D

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 Panama and Guatemala (and Jamaica) are available free . on the Mormon family history site site <https://familysearch.org/search/collection/list#page=1&region=CENTRAL_SOUTH_AMERICA> These records are being updated all the time, so keep checking back.

Hope this helps.
