Many people with Jamaican ancestry believe that they have to go back to Jamaica in order to find their roots. Not so! Thanks to the microfilmed records of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), as well as numerous online resources and digitized records this task can be done quite successfully right here in Canada. This presentation will give a brief introduction to Jamaican genealogical research, with reference to the history and geography of the island, and will explore the various records which have been microfilmed by the LDS and which can be accessed at Family History Centres. It will also look at the various digitized records now available online.
