This site is dedicated to the family tree of Cheddie who came to Saint Lucia as an indentured labourer. After his time as an indentured labourer he choose to remain here.
90% of the content on this site was researched by Richard Begager Shiva-Ram Cheddie (or here in the family tree). He spent a huge amount of time and effort do searches at the Saint Lucia National Archives, the National Registry and also a lot of time visiting family members all over the island to gather info. The amount of information gathered is tremendous but still a lot of data is lacking. If you have any information that can be added to this family tree do not hesitate to contact me at j69ds at hotmail dot com.
How I got involved:
I had a short family tree going back one generation and down one generation, it was online and this is how Richard found me. He dug around till he got a number and called me one evening and from there he sent me all the info he had at that time. I held on to that info for a long while but then decided that I should add it in and create a site for others to have access to the Cheddie Family Tree also. I am married to Filita also a descendant of Cheddie.
Again a huge thanks to Richard for the tremendous amount of work he put into this family tree!
To use the Family tree:
Find your name if you are a family member in the list on the left sidebar and click on it. This will bring you to a page showing your info and a chart showing your parents. Below it a couple of tables showing your siblings parents, and children. All names are clickable to go from one to the next
You can also just click on Family Tree (next to ‘HOME’) on the top menu it will put to at Cheddie the beginning of the tree here in Saint Lucia From there you can scroll down the list of descendents…
The Descendants with ‘++’ behind them are the links to my wife, the ones with ‘**’ go to Richards side.
Have fun and enjoy.
