Part 506s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1824 George Smith et Al

15 May 2011

Afternoon,

And the search and research for the ancestry and origins of ggg-grandfather James Smith continues. Did you think that I had abandoned it? Never! Not until I find that iota of a clue or lead that will give me a basis of his birth and lineage connections.

Continuing my Transcription Project and following up to my posting, Part 479s, here is the next part of that work. Schedule A of the Document was included in my Part 479s transcription. Schedules B and C are included in this next work. This next work includes references to George Smith and a number of other Smiths, which I believe may be referenced in the Descendant Charts that I included in Parts 480s, 481s, 484s, 485s, and 486s.

All-things-being-equal, this Document does not provide any hint or clue of ggg-grandfather James Smith’s genealogy.

The images are of Pages 351 through and including 361 of the Grenada Registers of Records as downloaded from Item 10 of the microfilm FHL [1563379].


Here is my transcription –
