Thank you to all those who attended our meeting on Saturday 26th September.
We had another interesting and informative meeting . Hopefully we will have given you inspiration and spurred you on to go further in your family tree. We discussed talking to elders, assisted a member with their tree and had an interesting talk on ‘Mix-up, secretive Caribbean families’.
A number of websites were mentioned during the meeting as detailed here:
- 4 Interview Questions to initiate elders into sharing family information after these questions open up their memories – if they are willing. See the following link from youtube – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcjtJy6owPE
- for Jamaica burials – on request www.jamaicanancestralrecords.com
- Legacies of British Slave Ownership, look for the parish/island: https://www.ucl.ac.uk/lbs/

Our next meeting is on Saturday 31st October.
