A Reader Searches for Family History

Dear Source:
My Grandpa and Grandma were from St. Croix in the Virgin Islands. Their names were Frank Aubry Armstrong and Maude Armstrong. I know some of the history behind their lives. I know that my grandpa worked on a sugar plantation in Puerto Rico, and he also had a wife before my Grandama Maude, and they had children together. Frank and Maude also had four children together. I always enjoyed hearing the stories of their life on the island of St. Croix. My grandpa Frank passed away at the age of 106, about 15 years ago, so I can't ask him any questions. Maybe you can help me. I am looking to contact any family I may have on the island and I don't know where to start. I would like my children to know their heritage, and I would like to connect with any family. Maybe you have some suggestions or information that might help me connect with someone from the Armstrong family. Thank you!
My e-mail address is tietheknotplan@yahoo.com. Sincerely,
Susan Armstrong-Santiago
