Antigua, Nevis, Monseratt, St. Christopher and Falmouth Records for the 1700's

Genealogy is so important to many of us. Finding records of our ancestors that are from the Caribbean is always a great feeling. While many feel that they must travel to the Caribbean in search of their ancestors, it is not necessarily always the case.  Such is the case for the island of Antigua and some of the other islands such a Falmouth, Nevis, St. Christopher and Monseratt.

With this collections, it requires a visit to a local Family History Center. Check your the below post to find one near you.

The collection for Antigua and the Leeward Islands includes church records , passenger and cargo lists, court records including taxation and military records. There is also written correspondences covering the islands. There are two films and they are as follows:

Correspondence Volume S, 1727 - 1729 Correspondence Volume T, 1730  #51-91 
Correspondence Volume V, 1734 - 1735  #52-109

 
As I come across more records, I'll make sure to post them on the website. Hopefully many will locate ancestors. Pull up this post to find these films from their computers.

Puerto Rico: Naranjito Church Records 1831 - 1936

I nearly missed the Naranjito church records as I didn't have them listed on my remaining list of churches in Puerto Rico.  I want to thank Olga Figueroa for asking about them.  A quick search of the website and I found that I never broke the films out for everyone.

Naranjito is a municipality that sits north of Barranquitas and Comerio but south of Toa Alta. Just west of Naranjito sits Corozal. The church records for this region includes baptisms, marriages, and death records. While some are in bad shape, they are still a treasure for many researching their ancestry for this region.  The breakdown of the records are as follow.

NOTE:  Book 4 of Baptism has records from 1901 - 1905 and 1925 - 1926 at the end.

Baptism


Marriages



NOTE: In Book 6 of  Deaths records, there are some 1906 deaths listed at the end.
