Caribbean Slave records from Ancestry.com

A “significant online collection” of Caribbean slave records will be launched by ancestry.com, the world’s largest online commercial resource for family history. Nearly 200 years of St. Croix Virgin Islands history is detailed in the collection.

This is a product of the St. Croix African Roots Project, initiated in 2002 by the Virgin Islands Social History Associates (VISHA).  Ancestry.com is working with V ISHA to make the collection more accessible.  Historical records found in Danish, Virgin Island and American archives were collected, documented and transcribed.  Individuals of African descent will have an easier time finding their African and Creole ancestors.   Visit http://www.ancestry.com/
