West Indian Gendarmerie, Main force in Christiansted: Muster roll for officers


The series contains the muster roll (overview) of officers of the West Indian Gendarmerie Corps on St. Croix between approximately 1910 and 1916. The muster roll states the soldier’s name, rank, date of birth, place of birth etc. The gendarmerie was a semi-military corps that functioned as both police and military on the islands.

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.

This is a photo of gendarme no. 66, 1916-17, E. Hansen of the Royal Danish West Indian Gendarmerie. Property of the Maritime Museum of Denmark, file no. 000027264.
