hi i have quite a hard request i think.
my husbands sister has asked me to help trace her great grandfathers birth and family in scotland.
problem is she has no dates at all or areas.
this is the info i have
joseph nixon born scotland left scotland to arive in dominica (not the republic)
he arives in dominica and is a wealthy man he meets and has children with a black woman .
he dies early and leave his oldest son clifford his estate and money.
however this is lost when clifford himself dies young again no dates except
i do know cliffords daughter was born around 1941 in dominica
so im working on joseph haveing left the uk in perhaps 1891 to 1901 ish.
my question really is where to start do any of you know any sites that might help me.
would joseph of had to of gone through new york then to dominica,
i doubt there would of been lots if joseph nixons traveling to dominica from scotland at that time but then again i could be very wrong
i know its a needle in a hay stack type thing but its cought my interest and i want to help them.
so any ideas gratefully recieved thank you.or if any of you have joseph nixons going of to dominica
