St. John's, Antigua, West Indies

R. O. E. Book, Box 189, 188 1750-1752
Item #3, LDS Film # 1855671




Read from April 2003 by Heather Nielsen

Each frame contains an individual sheet of paper, some small, some large, some folded, some badly torn, and there is "bleeding" on most pages. I have not tried to read each item, but have tried to give an indication of names shown so that anyone interested can obtain the film from the LDS for further research.
