***The person who you believe to be born in Bermuda.Can you tell me please if this is a person of color or white?This will make my search easier.I hope I have not offended you by asking this question.I simply would like to help.Judy Please acknowledge receipt of this message and if you would like for me to search further. I have the 19th Century Church Register of Bermuda and may possibly find your person in there.Note that birth registration was not done until 1866 and so if your person was not baptized, married or buried in Bermuda then we may not be able to find her.
