            Like most Central America, Belize was originally the home to Mayan Indians.  Occupied by Spanish in the 16th Century but relegated to a backwater state in its Empire.  Belize fell under British control in the 1700 s.  Most of its 1800-century settlers came from Scotland, England or Ireland. or were slaves imported from Africa.  Belize sea trade was extensive, so New Providence and other U.S. ports, as well as those in the West Indies, are mentioned in the records.  Moreover, a number of Loyalists fled the Carolinas at the end of the American Revolution settled in Belie.  Belize became an Independent nation in 1981.

ISBN:  9780806352787

            Most German and Swiss emigrants to the New World during the middle of the 19th century left from the Port of Bremen. Sadly, those lists were destroyed during the final year of World War II.  The lists that have survived from this period pertain to the Port of Hamburg and are in the hands of the Hamburg Police authorities. For the early years of this immigration, the original Hamburg lists do not exist, and instead researchers must rely on transcriptions made by the Police clerks in large bound registers.
            Working from microfilm copies of the Hamburg police lists, the author has reconstructed the identities of about 7,000 Hamburg passengers whose whose names were found among 60 separate lists for the year 1850 .

            Throughout history women have been silent partners.  As a rule they left behind few records of themselves because they had few legal rights.  When they married, they generally gave up their maiden name, which faded from the records; they couldn't own or even leave wills.
