I recently paid to have a Genealogy report done on myself. For a long time, I wanted to learn more about my family and those I descended from. Though the earliest time spot in the current report is the marriage of my maternal great x2 grandparents in the year 1900 it made for a fascinating read. I will be paying again to try to go even further back but I wanted to share some highlights from the report.
My maternal line is all based in St Ann, a lush northern parish in Jamaica we locals call “the garden parish”. Ocho Rios (Which I have always felt connected to) and the surrounding areas was the home of my fore-parents until my grandmother moved the capital (Kingston) in the mid-1960’s to work as a waitress. My mom followed in the early 1980’s.
