Trinidad & Tobago Genealogy - Page 2

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.

The Farfans are people who moved here in 1644 from the South American continent and are our oldest family of European origin.
