Once in a while we receive requests to help locate long lost branches of family trees and unknown relatives. There are lots of genealogy forums out there, but sometimes it helps to put the names to a wider audience.
We don’t mind helping out and our readers have come up with some wonderful connections along the way. So let’s see if we can help this reader from the UK…
Hi, I wonder if you can help. I am tracing my family tree and my 2x great grandfather Joseph Augustus Duncan (or Browne on his marriage certificate) was born in St Michaels parish Barbados in 1866. I am trying to trace his family. Do you know who I can contact? Are there any free papers on the island I could put something about this in? I live in England so it’s quite tricky for me to trace my Barbadian roots.
There you go, Stephanie. We’re not a “paper” but we are free and a couple of million viewers a year pass by BFP so you might get some response.
