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. Barbados's surviving parish registers were all copied during the mid-19th century and deposited in a central registry. And it is these copied parish registers, housed in the Barbados Department of Archives, which form the basis of these excellent reference works available from Clearfield Company.
