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


This archive series contains reports from the various congregations on St. Croix concerning marriages in the period 1828-1907. Apart from the name of the congregation, the date of the marriage and the names of the bride and the bridegroom, the reports also state if the couple was enslaved, free Afrocaribbeans or Eurocaribbeans. Furthermore, the reports may contain information on whether the bride and groom had been married before and who were the witnesses to the marriage.

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.
