There are still many exotic trees at our experimental garden, some from as far as Madagascar making Kingston’s Hope Gardens a great destination for both Jamaicans and travelers who want to enjoy a Picnic, Walk or Exercise in a large green space of over sixty acres.

Officially called the “Royal Botanical Gardens – Hope”, Hope Gardens started out as part of Hope Estate, stretching from the Blue Mountains right down to the sea. The Gardens were owned by Major Hope, a British Army commander who helped chase the Spanish away from Jamaica and the land was gifted to him as his reward.

The best time for Bird Watching at Hope Gardens is early in the morning, with the garden’s gates opening at 6am every day for you to see Mockingbirds, Doves, Pigeons, Kestrels and many more.

Hope Garden’s peaceful scenery offers a lush, green environment for bird watching as over 30 endemic Jamaican birds many can be observed here like Yellow-billed Parrots, Olive-throated Parakeets and Black-billed Parrots.

DISCOVER YOUR ROOTS

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

[geoip_detect2_show_if country=”JM”][/geoip_detect2_show_if][geoip_detect2_hide_if country=”JM”][/geoip_detect2_hide_if]

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.

Hourly rates for Official Genealogical Research is only JM$1500.00 or the US equivalent depending on the dollar exchange rate value of the day – currently about $15USD per Hour.

YOU WILL NEED TO PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION:

  • 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.
