Government-General, St. Thomas and St. John Government: Reports from Religious Congregations regarding Births, St. Thomas and St. John


This archive series contains reports from the various congregations on St. Thomas and St. John concerning children baptized in the period 1859-1918. Apart from the name of the congregation, the date of baptism and the name of the child, the reports also contain the name of the father and mother, and often additional information on their place of residence, church membership, and names of godmothers and godfathers.

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.
