Sisters looking for granddad

Two British sisters of Jamaican descent are now in Barbados trying to trace the roots of their grandfather, William Sealy.
A month ago Joan Sealy-John and Doreen Moses were in Kingston, Jamaica because it was stated on his passport that he was born there.
However, Jamaica’s registry has no account of Sealy’s birth in that country.
So, following suggestions of an elderly United States-based relative that their grandfather may have been a Barbadian from the parish of St John, the sisters flew into Barbados two weeks ago to start a fresh search.
They have visited the Barbados National Archives, The Barbados National Registry and searched throughout St John but found no trace. (AH)
