Did you look at the link I put in your other Thread? Let's keep the discussion to just here then and have a look at this: Source 1
Comments: I read your link, this is very interesting. I have absolutely no idea where to begin. I have an Uncle in Trinidad that is still living, I am going to email his daughter, any suggestions as to what I can ask him?
I don't want to get too happy, if there was a way to genetically test them, it would be so much easier
If he shares your last name then you can possibly see what records or information he can provide.
Comments: He doesn't. My grandmother remarried when my father was VERY young, so I think anything I would get would just be on memory.
I get a lot of submissions to this Thread for variations of "BORDE". I wish to ionform those who want to post here that this Thread is about the surname "BORDE" And not "LA BORDE", "MANBORDE" Or other names that may have "BORDE" In it. Additionally, the name BORDE covered in this Thread is based on those within Trinidad with origins from France. See more here: Source 1
As I mentioned here: Website Goals 2015 I want to redo this site. I am not interested in Genealogy anymore but the Borde Genealogy site is dated and could use a facelift.
Borde Genealogy Responsive
I finally got a chance to do it and renovated this site to be Mobile responsive: Jean Borde Genealogy. Some pages need content updates but I will do that at a later time. I hope for greater inclusion of those from my matriarchal and patriarchal lines.
Name: Nyasha Borde
Title: Borde by way of Trinidad
My name is Nyasha Borde and I am an American by way of Trinidad & Tobago. My grandfather was Ivan Borde born in Trinidad circa 1918. We never knew who Ivan's father was although on his birth certificate he was listed as Teddy Borde. My mother always believed tha Ivan's mother worked for the Borde family on their "plantation" and that is how she became pregnant. Ivan had brown to fair skin and her impression was that the Borde's were white people, possibly French. I am unsure of whether there is truth to this as the old folks didn't talk to children about these matters back in the day. Have you discovered a Teddy Borde in your research? Did your Borde family own any land or plantation back in the early 1900's? I do not know how to find more information about this branch of the family. Ivan was an only child and only had 2 daughters so the name is dying out in our family.
