[BARBADOS] Genealogy tourism has tremendous potential

Taitt- Eaddy: Genealogy tourism has tremendous potential

The interest being shown by Barbadians living here and abroad in tracing their roots is definitely on the rise.

Sandra Taitt-Eaddy, a Barbadian-born Genealogist now resident in the United States, says she is happy to see that over the last few years family history has become popular locally. Speaking to The Barbados Advocate on the sidelines of the Genealogy Marketplace, which was staged last Friday at the Archives Department, Taitt-Eaddy was hardly able to contain her excitement and enthusiasm, as she noted that the interest now being seen is just the tip of the iceberg.

As such, she believes strongly that the efforts by Barbados to go after genealogy tourism business, is definitely worth pursuing. She said that given the growing interest in family history, the country is sure to benefit economically and socially from such an
endeavour. Using the example of Connecticut where she lives, the genealogist said there is a great deal of focus on culture and history tourism there, which has proven to be quite attractive to visitors, and she feels confident that Barbados is right on target for capitalising on similar interest being shown here.
