Welcome to the St. Vincent & the Grenadines Gen Web Project. We are part of the regional Caribbean GenWeb Project, which is part of the World GenWeb Project. I am your webhostess, Cheryl Hazell, and I have been actively involved in this research for almost a decade.

On these pages you will find the resources you need to find clues to family ties to this island group. By following the recommendations on these pages, you should find your way around the challenges that Caribbean genealogy research can create. Please feel free to join our Caribbean Genealogy group if you are a Facebook.com member. Just search for it under that name. If you really need some questions answered or are seriously interested in creating or collaborating on future historical, cultural and sociological Vincentian research or projects, please contact me at nnekaderrick@rogers.com

The beautiful island chain of St. Vincent & the Grenadines is made up of 32 islands and cays, of which only eight are inhabited. They are located between the Caribbean Sea and North Atlantic Ocean, 90 miles west of Barbados. St. Vincent was also known as and is sometimes called by cultural activists and some die-hard preservationists, by its indigenous names: Youlou so called by the Callinago meaning "rainbow"; Yurumein, "the beauty of the rainbows in the valleys" or Hairoun, "home of the blessed".

The larger islands are: Bequia, Canouan, Mayreau, Mustique and Union Island.
