The CaribbeanGenWeb is a free genealogy website for Caribbean genealogy resources and is part of the WorldGenWeb Project.

“The CaribbeanGenWeb Project was started in early 1997 by Carol Haagensen.  Carol was searching for information regarding the U.S. Virgin Islands and happened across the WorldGenWeb Project.  She contacted the WGW host about starting a website for the U.S. Virgin Islands and the host asked her to create a website for the entire Caribbean region.  Carol worked hard to organize the project and to get on-line the resources necessary to assist researchers.  The Caribbean-L mailing list followed in 1998 and has turned into a valuable resource for researchers in the Caribbean.”
