About these Projects...

These projects are intended to renew rare genealogy resources that are disappearing due to the ravages of time, nature and/or man, and to make them available to researchers for at least another 150 years. They are also intended to make new or previously unpublished material available where available.

With depletion due to the regional lack of financial resources, frequent destructive hurricanes and general lack of interest in preservation, the initial focus is on books of Caribbean genealogical importance, but is not geographically limited.

The books will be reproduced as exactly as possible, with strong paper, bindings and sturdy covers suitable for a family library and/or frequent research use. Colour printing will be reproduced wherever it is found.

Where appropriate, a flyleaf will be added to all volumes with a signed certificate and limited edition number, which will assure faithfulness of reproduction from the original.

All publications so far have been reproduced exactly (not transcribed or reprinted), so what was in the original pages is in the new sets - no room for errors to creep in.

As these Projects progress successfully, part of the income from them will go towards providing Caribbean and other strategic Institutions with Caribbean genealogical materials, ranging from copies of the reproduction Projects to copies of microfilms and more. Larger Projects will also financially support smaller Projects for the greater good of all research, so part of your purchase price is working to promote other genealogically important Projects.
