FamilySearch Record Search This article describes a collection of historical records available at FamilySearch.org.
Access the records: Barbados Marriages, 1854-1879 .

Contents

Record Description

This index is an electronic database of information. The entries are primarily from the International Genealogical Index (IGI), along with some entries derived from compiled and original records, such as:

  • Family Records
  • Church Records
  • Civil Registration

It may also include indexes generated by the internet indexing project sponsored by the LDS Church.

There may be entries that cite a specific source such as the following:

  • "Vital Record of Rhode Island, 1636-1850: a Family Register for the People" by James Arnold
  • "Paul Dingwell Genealogical Collection" by Paul Dingwell
  • A county or state vital record registration

These entries are in this collection for one of the following reasons:

  • They were submitted by private individuals to the LDS Church and as such are part of the IGI resulting in their inclusion in this index.
  • They have been indexed through the internet indexing project sponsored by the LDS Church. If this is the case, the index they are a part of has been included as part of this database.

The Vital Record Index databases are not necessarily intended to index any specific set of records although some sub-indexes (an index to a set of records within the database) have been found. When we identify a sub-index, we remove it from the database and post it separately on FamilySearch under its appropriate title.

For over 30 years, volunteer indexers extracted this information from microfilm copies of the original records. This is an index of some burials throughout Barbados. The index is not necessarily complete for any particular place or region.

This index covers events from 1739 through 1891. 

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sponsored the indexing of this collection to help individuals find information about their ancestors.

Church vital records were an official source and are one of the most reliable sources of information available on those born and married in Barbados.

Citation for This Collection

The following citation refers to the original source of the information for collections published in FamilySearch.org. Source citations include the author, custodian, publisher and archive for the original records.

Genealogical Society of Utah. Barbados Marriages. Index based on data collected by the Genealogical Society of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah.

This collection may include information previously published in the International Genealogical Index or Vital Records Index collections.
