Explore Your Ancestral Family Tree with the Official Help of Jamaica’s Registrar’s General Department!

Have a Jamaican Government Staffer affordably conduct real Genealogical Research on your family’s history in Jamaica.

Jamaican Genealogical Information can be often incomplete as Official Registration of Births, Deaths, Baptismals & Marriages were originally kept & filed separately in each of Jamaica’s 14 parishes.

Additionally – Time, Nature & Acts of both God & Man have resulted in damage & loss to the Jamaican Family histories that do exist!

As a result, the most Efficient & Effective way to Find Out about Your Jamaican Family Roots is to work officially with Jamaica’s Government Registrar Department & their convenient & affordable Online Genealogical Research Application.

In an effort to improve customer service, the Jamaican Government Registrar Department has introduced a new online payment system for genealogical searches.

Official Genealogical Search Orders can be submitted and paid for Online, or by submitting a Money Order and a Jamaican Genealogical Researcher will contact you shortly to make arrangements for a follow up interview.

  • The Names of Your Jamaican Relatives

  • The Parish (region) of their Birth, Death, Residence, Marriage or Baptism

  • The Approximate Dates of their Birth, Death & other Publicly-recorded Events

  • The Names of their Spouse & other relatives, both living & deceased

  • Their Job, Trade or Occupation

Write down as much of the above-mentioned ancestral detail as you can – along with any other details that may be of help to Jamaican Government Researchers.

Older Relatives may have different memories or stories about your shared Jamaican Ancestor so record their versions of events, dates, schools, churches, family nicknames, alternative name spellings too – especially connections to another Jamaican Parish, Major Life Event or Property Sale / Purchase.

Military affiliations, ranks or passed-down stories can be of help too as there may be information on your ancestors contained in records on the old British West Indian Regiment or listings of Jamaican-born soldiers who fought with & for the British in both World War 1 & 2.
