On Saturday, I went to the Family Search Library in my area to search burial, baptism, and marriage records from St.Helena from 1790-1835. I was searching for my Hopkins relatives and came across the burial record for Napoleon Bonaparte. It was a neat discovery and I called everyone in the library over to see my screen.
I tried to capture the record on a photo. Napoleon died on the island about 1821. It looks like they just made his name larger than the other entries.
I will try to upload the entry to the photo area.

- Alexander,Thanks for the great link. I enjoyed reading about Margaret Rodenberg and her findings. While going through the lists, I felt as if I had known some of the names I came across. After reading about someone's marriage, the birth of their kids, and then their death - you feel like you have been on journey with these folks.Thanks,Linda M.
