West Indian Government: Reports from Religious Congregations regarding births, St. Croix


This archive series contains reports from the various congregations on St. Croix concerning births (baptisms) in the period 1841-1909. Apart from the name of the congregation, the date of the baptism and the names of the child, the reports also state the names of the father and mother, their place of residence, religion and the names of godmothers and -fathers.

The task in this archive series is indexing (tagging). This means, that we focus primarily on transcribing personal names, place names and dates. By transcribing these data you will make it easier for others, for instance genealogists, to find a document that contains a certain name they are looking for without transcribing the entire document. Exactly what we would like you to transcribe and how, you will see in the transcription guide.
