Our scattered clans
Since, I "really" started working on the family genealogy, history and this site, about a year and half ago. I have found so many things and people, and even hints and tips. Thanks to all for their help!
First, I'd like to say that distant relatives have contacted me through email and the various genealogy sites, from Australia, Canada, United States, Honduras, Costa Rica and Panama.
I have dedicated an email address to those who want to contact me, Kenneth Kwame Welsh, about the genealogy on the various surnames listed at this site: email@example.com
Kenneth L. Welsh, Sr., Memorial Service
On February 23, 2008, the family will be hosting a memorial service for our father, Kenneth L. Welsh, Sr.
This will be an all-day event at the family home in North Miami Beach, Florida. Carmen M. Welsh, our mother can be reached at 305-947-6719.
All friends, family and neighbors are welcome. We would love to see any that worked with Dad at Carrier Air Conditioning or in the Jamaican Army (Defence Force).
As more information becomes available, it will be posted here.

Halifax Nova Scotia Maroons
In about 1795, about 3 shiploads of Jamaican Maroons were exiled to Halifax, Nova Scotia (NS), in eastern Canada. The British said that these Maroons had broken certain treaties and were being sent to NS. This was possibly the coldest place they could find to punish these upstarts.
These Maroons and their families were put on the ships and sent to Canada permanently, but in a few years, they were again re-shipped to Sierra Leone, a British colony in West Africa.
More info will be posted shortly.
