Genealogy & The British West Indies

DearREADERS,
Google NEWS provided a link to the following article:

Genealogy & The British West Indies
Maps, manuscripts, printed books and newspapers form a new resource genealogists will find indispensable.

"Caribbean Views and Black Europeans are two new virtual exhibitions created by writer and broadcaster Mike Phillips, that are available on the British Library's website, www.bl.uk. Following an invitation from the British Library to curate a virtual exhibition on a topic of his choice, Mike Phillips selected maps, manuscripts, printed books and newspapers relating to the British West Indies from the Library's Collect Britain website. These items form the basis for Caribbean Views and are accompanied by Mike's personal responses and reflections that conjure up a vivid picture of life in the English-speaking Caribbean during the 18th and early 19th centuries."

Happy family tree climbing!
