Many Indians, from India, moved to the West Indies in the 19th Century.
I know some third and fourth generation people from Trinidad whose an
cestors came from India.
In a message dated 6/1/2010 6:33:46 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time,
I really need your help as growing up I was always told that my Great
Grandfather on my mothers side came from India. Looking at my mom I always
thought the information was correct.
With family information I do not think this information is correct at all.
Is there any way of finding out your ethnic origins. Both my parents are
from Jamaica, my mum is Rita Petgrave maiden name Chambers she was born in
Lucea, Hanover and my dad comes from Green island, hanover.
