Caribbean Family History
This year, for the first time, the Caribbean Family History Group was represented at WhoDoYouThinkYou Are? by Fathia, Carlston and Sharon. Speaking about the show, Carlston said
"It has become clear to me that Caribbean Family History is not a side show within Genealogy/Family History but a mainstream activity!... it has been the normal ‘punters’ to the show – ‘White/European’ British enthusiasts – that have been coming along and saying: ‘I have a family member who was from or went to Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago etc….. What can you tell me?’ In hindsight this should not be a surprise, but it was! A gratifying one."
