Valencia, The Registra General's records office in Spanish Town must be the most inefficient of our generally difficult to work with civil service. It takes people 6 to nine months ( and quite a lot of palm greasing) to even get a simple birth certificate. I do not know if they have a section for doing genealogical searches, somehow I doubt it. I guess that if yu have a starting point and know the date and parish of birth of the most recent person you could do a search. But I think it would involve comming here and working with the people at the records office. Sorry if I sound pessimstic, but I have had experience with the place.
