Join OUR Petition to Preserve & Digitize Indian Indentured Servant & Enslaved African Records in the Caribbean

Recent information has led me to understand that the West Indian ship records are at a continued risk for being lost. Some records are not properly stored, and the pages are crumbling.​

Therefore, we should work together to promote this project. I understand that some efforts have been made to protect and scan the records. However, all of the records should be available online for everyone to access.

Please sign the petition and encourage others to do the same. We want to actively collect signatures to show the West Indian and British governments that our population is deeply interested in preserving and learning about our history through these ship records. Please use the form below to submit any recommendations on preserving the papers, digitizing the records, and/or tracing such ancestry.
