Sheriff of Christiansted: Police records of arriving and departing individuals

Description

The series contains registers of persons who arrived in or departed from Christiansted between 1794 and 1847. Besides the names of passengers and date of arrival/departure, the registers also often contain information about the name of the captain and where the ship came from or was headed to.

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.
