Author: Joanne Sanders
Published: 2011 reprint of 1982 original
Paperback, 463 pages, volume one only
Many of the early settlers of Barbados eventually moved to the mainland and settled in Virginia, Georgia, the Carolinas and other colonies, with the result that many families in America today trace their origins in the New World first to Barbados. This two-volume collection of marriages is arranged by Barbados parish and thereunder chronologically. A typical entry shows the date of the marriage and the names of the bride and groom. This extraordinary collection of source records is the preeminent work on its subject.
