Our database of Haitian 19th century civil registers (births, weddings, divorces and deaths) located at www.agh.qc.ca was done yesterday. It now contains 12,258 acts from 1797 to 1819 and 69,113 names. An inventory of the database is located at http://www.agh.qc.ca/inventaire.htm
We are still looking for sponsors and members to help us continue this project until all 19th century civil registers of Haiti are entered into this database. Already some of the registers found, such as the Port-au-Prince birth register of 1816 was deteriorated to a point it is unreadable and its contents forever lost. Others, such as the 1808 birth register was only partially readable, while the 1813 and 1814 birth registers were not found at all.
