It does explain some info.
I'm really having a hard time with my ggrandmother Emma Smith's father Ruben Smith.. according to the census that I have he was born in Barbados West Indies in 1848.
It is also listed that he is Irish/Scottish.. my Father has always been told that we have Irish/Scottish decent but we have no other info than that..
I have stepped away from my search for a bit but I've found I need to start again.
Thanks for the help
