DONALDSON, SMITH - Jamaica, Portland

I am looking for my paternal relatives. My grandmother lived in the Uk her name was Leonora Catherine Donaldson and her maiden name was Smith. I went back to her family area in 2010 and there were still some relatives in the Islington area of Portland.

I am really interested in her husband's lineage- I believe his name was Ivan and he was a fisherman. As far as I know he came from the same area of Jamaica.

I'd be grateful is anyone has any information on either the Smiths or the Donaldsons.

I have found that my grandfather's name is Alvan Ernest Donaldson, not Ivan. His father was Alfred Ernest Donaldson and mother Mary Magdalene Donaldson. He was married once before my grandmother and he got married in 1913. He came from Nonsuch in Portland. If you know of any relatives who are living in the Portland area that would be helpful.
