A Caribbean Journey
Experiences of researching Barbadian ancestors from the UK.
Guy Grannum will provide a guided tour of his family history starting from the Caribbean. This will be an entertaining talk that will touch on the extension of UK Civil Registration to the colonies and how it worked in the context of the Caribbean. It will also touch on the challenges of UK research in the 20th Century pre- and post- internet. Guy uses some sources to illustrate his findings, and explains how he became a subject matter expert in Caribbean genealogy.
