Very interesting stuff. I live in the U.S. and was thinking about taking a trip to the old country sometime soon, hopefully.

Hey Kathleen, I would be glad to do so, funny...just today I have looking at the National Geographic Genographic Project https://genographic.nationalgeographic.com/about/. It costs US$200 to participate. I was thinking about it.
I am a case from Australia!
i diddnt know there were more cases!
I was wondering what orgin the last name Case came from?
Hello Major - Yes! This history is the route our Case family has taken - could you share more about your own family tree? Thank you so much. Katie
Hey Kate...the Case family in Jamaica seems to have English/Scottish/Irish connections... The Case name on the island goes back to the late 1600s/early 1700s shortly after the British captured Jamaica from the Spanish in 1655 (Penn and Venables had failed to capture Hispaniola from the Spanish and instead of facing Oliver Cromwell empty handed, they took the easy picking of Jamaica) A good site to do research is www.jamaicafamilysearch.org or familysearch.org. They owned property including slaves. It is a known fact in Jamaica that all Cases are related... all those that I have met do show some family resemblance including the nose, eyes and forehead.. no matter the hue in skin colour. This is espcially true if you go back 2 - 3 generations... Interesting about the Ibeeian link...I think I did come across that...maybe even a Jewish connection
Thank you! we do look forward to hearing from you regarding your ancestors and their journey - how shall we begin? We do know our roots seem to go back to Holland and further back to the Iberian Penninsula - with a connection to the Gormezano family.... Our Case family came to NY/NJ/PA and our men married Dutch women i.e. Wycoff, Deats/Geitsworth Cox, etc...long time ago - because seven generations later my grandmother was white, but still considered dark complected, we felt there was a connection somewhere to the islands, Jamaica, Curacao, Bahamas, Bermuda, etc. my granddaughter was married in Ocho Rios on June 14 - their choice of a destination wedding - Look forward to hearing from you! Katie
