Part 203s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1809 George Smith in Trinidad

09 February 2010


Four days pass and George Smith is now in Trinidad, and his Document is now entered to the Grenada Register of Records on the 15th of May 1809. This subsequent Document reads to me, that he is somewhat a bit more “forceful” in tone. What that means, I would not venture a guess.

And there is still no hint of a connection with ggg-grandfather James Smith.

This Document comprises of pages 231 and 232 of the Grenada Register of Records and from the microfilm FHL [1563328] in Item 6.

And for the sake of expediency of the transcription I used the software Dragon Naturally Speaking (DNS). DNS allows me to dictate directly into my word processing program and it causes my PC to automatically key the words to a document. It certainly helps the process of transcribing and I would definitely recommend a similar process to anyone.

And my transcription, but as you can see there still are blanks and question marks at those points of words that I cannot visually make out. I do not have any surrogate doing the work for me.
