Of course we should get a National Genealogical Research Library in Trinidad. I remember when I was little having to do research on my family tree so I know that the topic does come up from time to time. There are people from long-established families that have written books on their ancestry such as the Deverteuils and DeLimas. I've also known of folks doing research on their roots here and up-the-islands so hence my first statement to the affirmative.
