Ancestors from the Caribbean


This is a follow-on guide to Researching Immigrant Ancestry and relates specifically to sources that may help you with research in the Caribbean.

Hopefully family members will have told you where your ancestors came from and when and why they moved to Britain.

It is useful to know why because certain groups of people have records associated with them.

Some people of Caribbean descent will have come to Britain with their employers, some for business and some will have served in the armed forces and been discharged in Britain.

The vast majority came to Britain after the Second World War.

If you still have family living in the Caribbean, they may provide all sorts of interesting and useful information.
