Jamaican Family Search Genealogy Research Library


Records have been transcribed from the Parish Registers for the Anglican Church, and from Dissenter Marriages, and have been put in a genealogy program which produces reports for each family. Each page in "Registers and Wills" contains several such reports. The report below is an example of such a report. Note: numbers in square brackets in Red [eg. 1] are provided to explain how to read the report. The Key to the numbers is at the end of the report.
