Homestead Fund Raising Update

With a variety of new donations we have received through the US Mail we have now raised a total of $8250 towards our goal of $10,000! The matching funds have now been fully consumed!

We are in final discussions to purchase the stone needed for the work and should be able to start construction very soon. 

Thanks to all the people who have donated already. For the rest of you, we still have $1750 left to go. 

Please help us fulfill this gift and your money will go twice as far. If online transactions aren’t your thing, you can simply mail a check to:

Calling all Barbados & Caribbean Babbs

I need your help founding the tree for your branch of the family. I’ve located a number of databases that will aid in the research and pulling together a tree of what is known is the first step needed to know who to DNA test and what results to expect.

Thanks to Jason, one of our members, we have a record of what I believe is the first Babb to reach Barbados in 1659 as an indentured servant coming from Cornwall, England. We don’t have any further evidence yet to start making connections and this is where you come in.

To help me get going on this, I need your help connecting you to the records available online. Once I’m able to find one of your ancestors in the records, I should be able to trace your line back much further.

Please follow this link and complete the form on that page. There is no requirement to become a paying member of the association to do this, but we always appreciate that too.

If you happen to have your tree online somewhere please send me a link to it. Also if you use any genealogy program, I can accept Family Tree Maker and GEDCOM files.
