this is a documentary about a village in Jamaica that was home to German indentured servants in the 1800s and their last few descendants who still reside in this village.

link to doc- Germacians, The last of the Jamaican Germans - YouTube

I was in Seaford town, it was often referred to as German town, I have no clue if that is where they are referring to because my flash is down right now. I did not see more than 1 person and he was a jamaican-canadian-german white guy who was considered to have been senile.
