The New Bermuda Project is up an running!

+14 votes

Hello Fellow WikiTreers,

The new Bermuda Project is up and running.  It will cover early settlers from 1600-1707 and any historically significant Bermudian from any timeframe.

It is a sub-project of the United Kingdom Project.

If you have any profiles which fall within these parameters, please visit the project page to either join the project or see what you can do to get project treatment (cleaning-up, adding PPP, Templates and sources) for them.

Project members will be looking for and giving project treatment to profiles as well.

I am looking in earnest for some Bermuda- based relatives (-:
by Maggie N. G2G Astronaut (1.0m points)

Oh Maggie!  Throw out some names and I'll keep an eye out.

IF you run across resources or references, like what's up on the project page that aren't already on the list, please add them!

One thing I have found is that official information is hard to find. Bermuda doesn't seem to have any info on births, deaths or marriages public - nothing on Family search for sure! I have run across many, many posts about having to write for any official records directly from the archives in Bermuda. AND the archives doesn't have anything prior to 1866.

Maybe a trip to Bermuda is in order? Emoji

Hi Mags,

I'd be happy to join the Bermuda project. My paternal grandfather, Hugh Donovan Cooper, was born in Bermuda and moved to Canada when he was in his 20s. He had deep roots in Bermuda, dating back to the early British settlers. I'm a direct descendant of Thomas Cooper (1626-1680). I'm likely a descendant of a number of other early settlers. Some of my other names are Ingham, Masters, Albouy, Newbold and many others.

I've not yet done much in the way of research on my Bermuda ancestors, due to the lack of online resources. I have relied on the work of other researchers and what I've received from relatives in Bermuda and a 2nd cousin 1R who I've connected with via DNA testing. To date, I've only entered my direct ancestors in WikiTree, but I do have some additional information. I'm sure that most of us with ancestors from Bermuda connect at some point along our family trees!

Great to have you on board and let me know if you have any ideas how we can wrangle a trip to Bermuda to do...research. Emoji
