I Love Dancing

My name is Roxanne. I was born in Manchester, Jamaica. This Web site provides some background on me, my parents, my family, and my grandparents.

Beyond my relationship with God, my relationship with my family is the most important thing to me. This is why I decided that my family would be the best focus for this Web site.

One of the things I have always regretted is the inability to trace my roots all the way back to its origins in Africa. I want my nieces and nephews and, ultimately, my own children to have a sense of their history and so I decided to build this Web site about the most recent four generations of my family.

Much of the information about my grandparents has been taken from the stories my parents told me about them. Unfortunately, while they were alive, I did not have the foresight to record their life experiences first-hand. However, I believe the narrative is richer because of the personal memories provided by my parents and my own memories of my grandparents.

Hopefully, the next generation of Watsons will take the time to record the lives of their own grandparents while they are here so that future generations will benefit from this.
