Resolved was: Re: [JAMAICA] Disappointed....

I thought I would mention that a while ago the problem was finally resolved. After having had an email exchange where I sent a message to both Grace Allen-Young (YoungG@moh.gov.jm) as well as Ms. Holness (patricia.holness@rgd.gov.jm), I was eventually able to demonstrate quite clearly just how badly the RGD had screwed up.
In that email, I detailed the number of calls I had made to Jamaica (when and for how long...), the number of emails I had sent (and to which addresses), the number of email replies I had received (almost none, except for the rejected messages), and the time that had elapsed since I sent the money order. I also was able to tell them, thanks to the USPS, what date the money order was cashed on.
Once all this was laid out for them to both see, then Holness of course blamed the computer problems. But eventually she decided to do her job and get us our marriage certificates. I think they came about 2 - 3 weeks prior to our first anniversary. In particular, twelve copies of them came (we ordered two).

So my advice is be persistent. Keep sending emails to the RGD and the MOH until they get tired of hearing from you. Eventually they will bend and do the job that they are paid for...
