Re: [JAMAICA] Disappointed with Registrar General'

Hi BJ:

I read your post regarding your request for research documents from the government of Jamaica. I am sure that this would be a great embarrasment to Jamaica. When you consider how many Americans proudly point to their Jamaican ancestry, it is a tragedy that the bureaucrats that manage these records have prevented you and others from obtaining the records...Not to mention a significant loss of money.

Perhaps the Jamaican newspaper The Gleaner might assist in reaching the persons who would react positively to your concerns. US contact is below:

A possible source may be the author of the article that is linked below.

"A LIVING SLAVE NARRATIVE" by Angelo Costanzo
from the Department of English,Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania has written a fascinating article on researching the family of one family from the British West Indies.

Costanza's article will certainly inspire all of us.
