Genealogy Research
Have traced the "Bromfield" family line to Scotland circa 1555 and later to the parish of St. Elizabeth, Jamaica beginning in 1775. My thanks to the Mormon Church which made the majority of the research possible through their extensive records collection. This knowledge base has been expanded by field trips to the Library of Congress in Washington, DC, the Island Record Office and the Archives in Jamaica along with work performed at the (PRO) Public Record Office, London and the National Archives of Scotland in Edinburgh.
Converting Pics to Digital Format
Am currently in the process of converting family pictures to digital format using a HP-5PSE flatbed scanner. .The "pics" will be available to family members on CD-ROM.
Converting Docs for Digital Retrieval
Have accumulated hundreds of pages of articles on the social history of the times. These, together with rare maps and books in the family's possession will also be digitalized and made available on CD-ROM.
Make Genealogy Data Accessible on Web Page
Make available in the form of tables, images and transcripts all data that may be of use to others researching the same geographical areas.

Personal Interests

My very first computer was an Atari 800 back in 1981. I enjoyed writing simple programs in BASIC. Seven years later I took a course in "C" and learnt about writing structured programs! This culminated in writing DBASE III+ programs coupled with barcode technology to track both people and equipment in a large hospital environment. What a "Rush"!!!
If all creation is evolving then exploring the cultural evolution of our families is a worthwhile pursuit. Besides, . . . . it's FUN!!
Keeping fit and healthy is a number one priority for me. Running is great because I can do it wherever I go with little equipment and no planning.
