Part 262s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1826 James Smith

17 April 2010

Morning,

It’s a beautiful Tampa spring morning. I would be able to see all the flowers, the greenery and the what-nots if my eyes were not watering as they are from the yellow mist of pollen. What a tremendous day.

And my working with Window 7 is going quite well. The learning curve on the conversion does not appear to be as long as I had thought it would be.

The Transcription Project continues. The James Smith of this Record is more than likely the same James Smith of the previous Record, in Part 258s, and he could be ggg-grandfather James. But there are no hints or clues as to his genealogy or ancestry.

This morning’s Record dated 15 August 1826, acknowledged 12 September 1826 and entered to the Grenada Registers of Records appears to be related to the Record I transcribed in Part 258s. All-things-being-equal it appears that the five shillings and one peppercorn turns into £600.00.

Here are the four pages, 395 to 398 from Item 2 of the microfilm FHL [1563380].


And my transcription –
