My Math advisor is interested in genealogy! I saw his personal school website.
Why does this matter?
It lead me to copious amounts of links to genealogy, especially for the Caribbean in general, not just Jamaica!
I am half St. Vincentian. That is all I know so far, and I can only go 3 generations back. And then the history gets muddy. I haven't delved that far into my background through my family, I'm somewhat shy to talk to them. This could be a great way to initiate connection with them, I know that at least.
I want to start genealogy of my mother's side.
I'm really excited because I found a web page with official records specially FOR st Vincent and the Grenadines! I had almost resigned myself to giving up, being lost in the vast billions of people and millions of histories there are in the world.
And one of the most exciting parts of this discovery in the counter. Over 6000 people/hits have been recorded. This means there are many other people interested in this project.
I have to remember for my first trip to st. Vincent, to involve myself in genealogy of my family. We have a pretty common name, so this won't be easy.
I forgot to add the stuff I've knitted as of late.
