Are you still doing look ups in Halifax.
I am trying to find living relatives of of my Great Grandfather Frederick James Hamilton b 1847 in Halifax NS.
I'd also love to know where we was originally from, either Africa or perhaps Jamaica.
His parents are believed to be Thomas Hamilton and Isabella Brown.
We originally thought Thomas was a slave in the south but the dates don;t seem to fit this theory. I have also heard of a Thomas Hamilton born in 1797 in Truro but I'm not sure if this is an area where coloured families lived.
Frederick left Canada for the UK in his late teens then ended up here in Australia where he married in 1879.
I hope you can help.
