I’d like to welcome a new member to the blogging community and the only other Virgin Islands genealogy blog I know of. My Genealogical Journey traces blogger Shelley Dewese’s experience researching her family. Like this blog, she shares her personal discoveries as well as bits and pieces of Danish West Indies history as she uncovers them. Her family, the Bough and Beaudhuy families, have lived in St Croix for over 200 years, in paradise!
Although I don’t know of a connection between our families, there is one person whom I ran across with a very interesting name: In Oct 1874 a child of one Ernst McNobney Beaudhuy and Mary Duncan was baptized in the Lutheran Church. The middle name suggests that there may be a maternal relationship with my ancestor, Amey McNobney. We’ll have to wait and see.
Anyway, please welcome Shelly to the community!
