Jamaica records on FamilySearch

At the One World - One Family conference in Brampton on Saturday Dorothy Kew was recognized, along with Helen Warner, for their  persistence in pushing FamilySearch to add over 2 million records in the collection Jamaica, Civil Registration, 1880-1999. The Jamaica civil registration births had been online from 2011 but, because of problems with the coordination of the project in at Salt Lake City the marriages and deaths were only added on August 16. The records are linked to original certificate images.

Other Jamaica records at FamilySearch.org are

Jamaica Births and Baptisms, 1752-1920 287,389
Jamaica Church of England Parish Register Transcripts, 1664-1880 365,639
