Dear Member, Researcher or Contact,

We are, as normal, having our month end research meeting this Saturday at The Core Library, Solihull.

It will be tighter affair, in terms of time, as we are manning a table and taking full group involvement in the Windrush Ball event to be held in the evening in Birmingham – a project that the group has taken an involvement in setting up.

As such we expect to be ending the session promptly for a 4.15pm departure.  So your arrival at 1pm would be mutually beneficial.

Just to remind you of the resources at Solihull –

Hope you are motivated to come along and do some of your own research.  If so we look forward to seeing you on Saturday.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.


Don’t call it a comeback!

The Caribbean Family History Group was founded in 2012 by individuals in London and Solihull conducting their research into their families’ history. The blog has been quiet for a few years but we’re attempting to bring it back with events listings, book reviews and interviews that might be of interest for people researching their family history in the Caribbean.

The group in Solihull is still going strong with regular meetings held at The Core Library and has established their own collection of records for researchers in the Midlands.

So, what would you like to see? What books or records have been useful to you?
