WDYTYALive! 2016 Caribbean Family History

Fabulous to see representation of the Caribbean community at the WDYTYA show. Certainly under-represented.

Caribbean Family History Group of Solihull and Birmingham. 

From their blog they report they are building a collection of Caribbean resources at the Solihull Library. http://www.solihull.gov.uk/heritage
