Danish Lutheran Church Parish Registers

In the late 1820s, the Danish Lutheran Church on St. Thomas Island suffered a fire which burned the building to the ground. With the help of all the other churches on the islands, the Danish Government, The Royal Government of the West Indies, and private citizens, the church was rebuilt. It is not known to me how much of the parish registers were lost in the fire.

Selected names relevant to my own research have been copied from these parish registers. They are posted here in hopes that they might help someone else, too.

Henrick Thoager, child of Kragh Masla Moller and Petrie Moller
Jens Nicolaj, child of Madanna Grunner and Otto Tolkersen
