Hi there

A wonderful resource for researching family history is the National Archives at Kew. I searched through the passenger lists of steamships that sailed between London and the West Indies to find which boat my grandmother sailed on from London to Jamaica in 1900 and my mother from Kingston to London in 1939. I spent two days just browsing - so much historical information there.
