Online Conference: Caribbean Ancestors: Surfing Anglican Records Online


Presented by Genealogist Sandra Taitt-Eaddy
Saturday, September 26, 1:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Cost: $85

This program will be held on Zoom. A link and more information will be sent to participants via email before the live program.

Whether you are researching early colonial families involved in the West Indies, enslaved Africans or more recent arrivals to America, Caribbean Ancestors will start you on an exciting journey into your past. This workshop highlights documentary evidence, records and resources specific to the “English speaking” islands in the Caribbean. The most accessible and useful of these is a collection of Anglican Church registers spanning hundreds of years. For most of the British colonial era, the church created these vital records for the state.

This workshop will explore these important records and resources as well as the vital role of oral history and tradition in tracing Caribbean ancestors. Sandra Taitt-Eaddy, through lecture and demo sessions, will investigate various time periods, and identify the data the church chose to collect and provide tips and techniques for interpreting these records and how to make use of what you find. With Caribbean Ancestors and Anglican Church Registers, participants make discoveries about the Caribbean’s complicated history as they learn about their own ancestry and heritage.
