I’m over the moon!

Overwhelmed with how much I have found...

It has been said in our family that we could not obtain information further back than my great-grandfather due to slavery in Jamaica. Even the information we have on him is very spotty. However, upon finding this site last month, I have not only located my great-grandfather's birth certificate, I have also discovered siblings of his that we didn't know he had (and their birth records) and HIS parents birth records and THEIR parents birth records! I suddenly have located a dozen more family members we didn't know we had... and I have the names and birth records of my great-great-great grandparents!

All of these findings have more than thrilled my family, especially the elderly members who have been trying to keep what little records we had of our family's past.

Thank you, thank you, thank you xxx :'-)
