You are so very welcome. ……..but check out what comes next…………the JACKPOT for sure………….

Now it is time for you to save your money
to come to the island and walk the roads your ancestors did.
I run a small guest house so let me know when you are coming……….
Then you can thumb through all my genealogy books on Bermuda and find out even more information. Like tracing your Joy DARRELL ancestors.

Speaking of DARRELL – I have a friend I met online who lives in New Zealand his name is Pete DARRELL and he is a direct decendent of Jemmy DARRELL of Bermuda who was our first ships Pilot. He is being honoured this year as it is our 400th anniversary – we were discovered in 1609.
I will tell Pete about you and maybe your families will cross branches.
He arrives on Monday the 13th to stay for a ten days and he is actually getting married here as well.

Now check out the books on wills:
