if your carribean ancestors immigrated to america between 1892-1924 go to www.ellisisland.org(this includes puerto ricans, puerto rico, dominican republic is part of the spanish carribean)and Haiti(french carribean)
during this time your ancestors were free and decided to immigrate to america for opportunity. hundreds immigrated. you will find the passenger record and ships manifest of your ancestor,lots of information about your ancestor are on these records, and the ships manifest is often loaded with two pages of informaton on your ancestor and guess what? this is a free website, no charge, just fill out the application and search. sometimes, the surnames are spelled slightly different as another person is transcribing their names so try various spelling and you will find them. example; carty, can be spelled carti, cardy, mccarty, mccarthy, cordeu, etc. you get my point, by now.
