It looks like my grandfather came over a year earlier than my grandmother. I never got to meet either of them. But I saw pictures of them. My Grandmother was a school teacher. My Grandfather was a Independent Window Washer.

As you can see from the records they came from Trindad. What I found interesting was how the Ethnicity was listed: just British African for my Grandmother and British W. I., Af. Bl. For my Grandfather. I guess part of the reason may have been do to my Grandmother's heavy Indian (of the India variety) features.

Success has many different meanings to different people. I have found that there are somethings which must take place first. Number 1 is having Financial Freedom. Without having Financial Freedoms our dreams are always subject to the sway of others. The slave's dreams are influenced by the slave master.
