My Jamaica Family
I came across My Jamaican Family a beautifully written and illustrated blog, by Jamaican-Canadian librarian Dorothy Kew, exploring the history of her family in Jamaica. The blog includes fascinating tales of growing up in New Kingston and train trips into the country.
This post about using the LDS Family History Centre microfilm ( the Hyde Park Family History Centre in South Kensington would have the same records) and online records of the Jamaican Gleaner Newspaper Archive are particullay useful especially for those interested in research. Well worth a visit.
