New edition of Tracing Your Caribbean Ancestors

A new edition of Guy Crannum's Tracing Your Caribbean Ancestors, which deals with ancestral research in the British West Indies, has been published by Bloomsbury. The National Archives has a post on the back of the announcement detailing some of its online resources at http://nationalarchives.gov.uk/news/759.htm, whilst the book itself is available to order from http://nationalarchives.gov.uk/bookshop/details.aspx?titleId=2729.

From the blurb on the TNA site:

Fully updated and revised, this new edition covers recent developments in Caribbean archives, including details of newly released information and archives that are now available online. This book outlines the primary research sources for those tracing their Caribbean ancestry and describes details of access to archives, further reading, useful websites and how to find and accurately search family history sources.

As Britain does not hold locally created records of its dependencies such as church records, this book doubles as a gateway to the local history sources throughout the Caribbean that remain in each country's archives and register office. This book will be of use to anyone researching family history in British Caribbean countries of Anguilla, Antigua, Bahamas, Barbados, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Jamaica, Montserrat, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent, Trinidad and Tobago and the Turks and Caicos Islands as well as Guyana, Belize and Bermuda.
