Jamaica/West Indies/Caribbean Genealogy Newsgroups and Lists

Join the West Indies Newsgroup/Caribbean List and Jamaican List to contact other researchers

Through the hard work of Sally Jones, Kent, England, Vaughn Royal of Alexandria, VA and others, there is a newsgroup for the West Indies: soc.genealogy.west-indies which includes Jamaica and 30+ West Indian islands and countries. If your internet provider carries "newsgroups" you will be able to access this group. If not, it doesn't do any harm to ask the provider to add the newsgroup.

This newsgroup is now linked with the Caribbean-List, an e-mail list which comes in Digest form or single message form. To subscribe to Caribbean-L, e-mail to CARIBBEAN-L-request@rootsweb.com. Put nothing in the subject line and turn off your signature and other automatic additions, write only 'subscribe' in the body or text area of your message. Currently messages are running 11-25 messages per day, so if you want to receive the output as a digest (ONE long message), address your request to CARIBBEAN-D-request@rootsweb.com
