"Angela Reid Collection (Birth, Baptismal, and Death Registers) [1795-1965]"

The collection comprises ecclesiastical records held by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Kingston, Jamaica since 1795. It contains information on burial, baptismal, confirmation and marriage for the period 1795-1823. The collection also includes baptismal certificates of enslaved, free black and mixed race peoples, including materials before 1823. There were several priests and religious leaders responsible for sacraments before 1823, including Father Anthony Quigly, Father Peter Francis (also known as Joseph) De L’Espinasse, Father William LeCun, Friar Juan Jacinto Rodrigues d’Araujo and Father Benito Fernandez.The records have been organized by the Chief Archivist, Father Gerard McLaughlin, S.J. McLaughlin named the collection of early birth, baptismal and death records after Angela Reid, a former student of the Master of Heritage studies at the University of the West Indies (Mona, Jamaica). Reid helped him to organize the collection. She also transcribed a significant portion of the early collection, so that documents could be searchable.
