"If people did not know that St, Kitts had historical records, then we wanted to show them that we do in a way that was interesting," said National Archivist Victoria Borg-O'Flaherty, addressing the creation of the historical Web site.
"What better way then, to tell a story, or in this case several stories, and then show some of the sources of the information? Histories and some of the records connected with them will be online for students to use, in the hope of encouraging research into local history."
Borg-O'Flaherty also explained that archivists from around the world recognized the value of their slave registers.
