Part 632s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – 1798 Benjamin D’Harriette Smith - St. George’s, Grenada – 1,000 Years

26 January 2012

Good Day,

The search continues. This is my Genealogy Transcription Project. I am looking for any hint and clue that may proffer me with a lead to the ancestry and genealogy, as well as the origins, of my ggg-grandfather James Smith. I would like to discover from where my Smith line arrived in Grenada.

This Transcription Project is my effort to transcribe, while reading as many as possible Smith-related Documents and Indentures that have been collected in the Grenada Registers of Records. The earliest set on record begins approximately in the year 1764. The Family History Library in Salt Lake City has 33 16mm microfilms that include Records of the years 1764 through and about 1931.

This is my task. It is self-imposed and all-things-being-equal I will find that iota of a hint that will answer the question of the origins of my Smith Line. To date I have been working on this Transcription Project for about two years... and I will continue.

Here is the next Indenture from the Grenada Registers of Records, which is an additional Record regarding the Benjamin D’Harriette Smith, James Park and Robert and Elizabeth Ker contract. Here are the images of Pages 470, 471, and 472 as downloaded from Item 3 of the microfilm FHL [1563378].



Sorry to say, this Smith Indenture does not have any apparent lead to the genealogy of ggg-grandfather James.

And my transcription –
