Genealogical Research in South America

Welcome to my South American research Page. I have been researching a collateral ancestor and his activities for some years now in Uruguay and Argentina. So far I have found little on the Internet to help me directly either in my search or that brings together people with genealogical research interests in South America -- so I am starting this page as a first attempt to rectify this situation.

My aims are:

  • To bring together researchers with an interest in the British settlement of the South American sub-continent.

  • To create a list of useful research orientated WWW links for the said research.
  • To create a list of reference material for research in this area of the world.

The following pages indicate my first thoughts on the subject and I should welcome any submissions from other researchers to make these pages a useful WWW resource. Please also feel welcome to make suggestions regarding layout, content, objectives etc.
