An Introduction to Caribbean Family History

The Caribbean was populated by millions of voluntary and involuntary migrants and settlers from the UK, Africa and South Asia from the 17th century.  Many later returned or migrated to the UK for education and work. Especially in the 20th century. Do you have family who settled in the Caribbean or migrated to the UK from the Caribbean? Guy Grannum will introduce you to sources available in the UK and online, and techniques to help you to research your Caribbean ancestors.
